Do I have to set up an Advisor Manulife ID?
Yes. If you want to access Manulife Investment Management resources, you will need to set up your Advisor Manulife ID to access Repsource. You'll use your Advisor Manulife ID to sign in and manage your business.
I’m not sure if I have an Advisor Manulife ID. How can I check?
If you don’t remember, here’s some tips to help you:
- Make sure you’re signed out of your Manulife account, then click Forgot your username on the login screen? If you have an Advisor Manulife ID, you’ll receive an email in less than 5 minutes.
- If you use the same email address to try and set up a second Advisor Manulife ID, you’ll get a warning message saying: “Hang on – it looks like you might already have an Advisor Manulife ID…”.
Do I need an Advisor Manulife ID as a Marketing Assistant or Back-office staff?
Yes you do!
Marketing Assistant: If you support one or several specific advisors and require access to their client information, you should register as a Marketing Assistant. Manulife will reach out to the advisor(s) for approval. Once you’re approved to support at least one advisor, additional advisors can use our self-serve feature and grant you access to their business, by adding your name and email ID as an approved Marketing Assistant. After you have registered as a Marketing Assistant Manulife will reach out to the advisors for approval.
Back-office staff: If you work for an MGA or National Account back office and support an entire dealer and require access at a branch or dealer level, you should register as Back-office staff.
I don’t have an Advisor Manulife ID and can’t access Repsource, what should I do?
Go to repsource.ca and click “continue”. Follow the steps to create your Advisor Manulife ID and link your existing Repsource username and email address. This process can be completed within 24 hours but may take longer if approvals are required for Marketing Assistants and Back-office staff. If you need guidance, this guide can help.
If I have a Manulife ID, do I need to set up an Advisor Manulife ID?
Yes. A Manulife ID is for clients to access their personal Manulife products within Manulife Investment Management, Manulife Securities, Manulife Vitality, and Group Retirement.
An Advisor Manulife ID gives actively contracted advisors, Marketing Assistants and back-office staff access to view and manage their business through Repsource and Advisor Portal.
We have multiple people in our company who need access to client information. Can we all use the same Advisor Manulife ID?
No. Each person in your organization must create their own Advisor Manulife ID, specific to their access needs. This keeps the accounts secure as people change responsibilities or companies and it is the advisor’s responsibility to immediately update the access within their Profile. For help granting and removing access, review the “Setting up delegate access” PDF (log into Repsource before accessing the link).
Note: Our system will detect when another device is trying to logon using your credentials and we’ll send you a text message or email for verification before access is granted. Marketing Assistants must have their own unique Advisor Manulife ID, using a separate username and email ID.
For my Advisor Manulife ID, can I use the same username and password as my Repsource credentials?
For your Advisor Manulife ID, you can use any username you like, so long as it’s not already being used for another Manulife ID. You can choose to use any password you like, so long as it meets the password strength requirements.
After I finished setting up my Advisor Manulife ID, I wasn’t able to sign in.
The final step needed to complete setting up your Advisor Manulife ID is to click the Activate button that you’ll find in an automated email you get from Manulife. This button must be clicked in less than 15 minutes of getting the email.

I’ve clicked the link with my confirmation email, but it’s giving me an error message. What should I do?
The activation email link is only valid for 15 minutes. If you use the link to activate your account outside of that 15-minute window, you’ll see an error message saying: “Sorry, this link isn’t active anymore”.
It’s important to activate your Advisor Manulife ID right away. If you don’t, you’ll have to start the process again.
I’m getting a message saying I’m locked out of my account. What should I do?
This happens after you try to sign in a few times with the wrong password. To unlock your account, click Forgot your password. A one-time passcode will be sent to you either through mobile text (if you set this up) or email.
I didn’t receive a one-time passcode. What do I do?
- Check your junk and spam folders to see if the code was accidentally sent there.
- Make sure you’re connected to the internet.
Tip: If you requested multiple verification passwords, only the newest one works. A one-time password expires in 15 minutes.
