Common Questions


Account Access Q & A Can I use Account Access?

If you hold an account directly with J.P. Morgan Funds, Account Access is for you.

Why should I use Account Access?

Account Access gives shareholders the ability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to view information on their funds. You can view your statements and tax forms, view the funds in your account, add new funds exchange shares, make a redemption, change your address, check the cost basis of your fund, and more.

How do I sign up for Account Access?

The first thing you must do is select the ‘Register’ button under New User. You will need the last four digits of your Social Security Number, your account number and then select a fund you hold in your account. Create your User ID with at least one numeric and one letter characters. The minimum length for User ID is 8 characters.

Why 128 bit security?

J.P. Morgan is concerned about the security of your transactions. Our success as a financial institution depends on our ability to manage these systems safely and to continue to earn your trust as our customer. By requiring 128-bit encryption, we are assuring the highest level of commercially available security for your financial transactions.

How do I check my browser to make sure it is compliant?

To check your browser's version and encryption level, follow the steps below. Even if you are not using our account access feature, you may still want to upgrade to the 128-bit secure versions of your browser. This will enable you to use all the functionality of our site and others. You can find these browser security updates at Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Internet Explorer:

  • Look under the Help menu and select About Internet Explorer, this will display both the browser's version and cipher strength (level of encryption.)

Firefox:

  • Look under the Help menu and select About Mozilla Firefox. This will display information similar to the following: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4. After the platform information (Windows or Macintosh) there will be either a "U" or an "I." A "U" indicates that you are using the U.S. version, with sufficient (128-bit) encryption. An "I" indicates you are using the international version, which has a lower encryption level (40-bit), and should therefore upgrade.

  • Click here to download the latest version of Internet Explorer or for Firefox. For other browsers, please visit their Web sites for more information.

How do I cancel a pending transaction?

Certain transactions processed online are able to be cancelled on the Pending Transactions page. If you require assistance, please call a Shareholder Services representative at 1-800-480-4111. Our representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm ET. If the pending transaction is not cancelled before market close on the same business day, the trade will be processed.
