Verifying your identity to connect with your LGFT record

You'll then be asked to give more identification documents to connect your identity with our records. Follow the instructions as you complete the online form.

If you can't complete the whole form now, you can save it and return to it within 72 hours.

Once you've taken the step to connect your identity with our records:

  • your forms will be pre-filled with your details
  • you won't need to submit any further identification documents unless something changes.

This will save you time and effort.

Using forms that aren't pre-filled

You don't have to use a QLD digital ID (i.e. a QGov account or myGovID) to submit a form online. You can choose to submit a 'public form' instead. You'll still be able to complete it online, but the difference is your details won't be pre-filled.

To do it this way, select the form you want to use from the tiles on the online portal. Then select the Public form button.

If you can't complete the whole form now, you can save it and return to it within 72 hours.
