I can access my accounts from both eFP and Principal Funds. Do I use the same login information?

Typically, your username and password will be the same for both eFP and Principal Funds sites. However, in some cases you may already have a pre-existing username and password with eFP  and you should continue using those. Similarly, the username and password for Principal Funds does not necessarily give you access to eFP.

I received an error message. Why?

There are two possible reasons:

  • Your login wasn’t properly processed.
  • There is extensive server or internet traffic.

Please contact the call center for more information at 866-237-9742.

If you update your information on it will not transfer to the eFP Web site or update commission information.
