Equal Rights Division Case Portal


MyWisconsin ID has replaced DWD ID for Case Portal users. At this time, the change applies only to the ERD Case Portal. To access the ERD Case Portal, you must register for a MyWisconsin ID.

Please note that this change applies even if you previously had access to the ERD Case Portal using a DWD ID.

You should continue to use your DWD ID for other DWD resources until those applications have migrated to MyWisconsin ID.

Other government resources will eventually move to MyWisconsin ID. As those resources migrate to MyWisconsin ID, you will be able to access those services using the MyWisconsin ID you have created here.
