    Default mypay passwords

    Just had to change my password on mypay. I know its for security reasons, but really? You need a password of atleast 15 characters, using caps,numbers, special characters, etc.....
    Now, imagine if you are 70, 80 and have to remember this password?
    You are told "dont write down your passwords" and never use the same one on multiple sites.
    I am glad for the security wall, but c'mon, 15 characters.

    May peace their mission ever be,
    Protect each one we ask of thee.
    Bless those at home who wait and pray, for their return by night or day.

    Remember when the Chinese hacked and stole the top secret F35 plans a few years ago from the DOD??? Don't worry though, your 15 character password is hackproof. LOL...

    The Chinese hacked the F35 plans, looked at them for a while and said "you can have these back- you're not going beat us by tricking us into wasting billions on a boondoggle like this".

    Shit, they can have it. Not much in there anyways. Just think of an 80 year old vet, hard of hearing, memory abit foggy, trying to remember his 15 character password. Yelling across his house to his wife asking what the password is.

    Ha! My dad is 73, and has problems with his smart phone! (it's a damn apple-explains a lot!)

    He was always forgetting his passwords, and always having to change them 'for security reasons'

    For his birthday, I bought him a pass word book, and went through all his sites, made sure it was the correct PW, and wrote them down for him.


    I'm surprised he hasn't taken the shotty to his computer yet!

    Yep, had to change mine last week. Took me about 3 tries before I got it right and quit getting the error messages. On a side note, I can't seem to find my VA disability pay 1099 on there. Can anyone help? I got my regular retired pay 1099 but not the disability one.
    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    VA Disability Pay isn't considered 'income' for tax purposes. I have never gotten a 1099 for it.

    Understand that it is not taxable, but thought they would still give a 1099. What if it was state taxable, how would you report it?
