VA & DoD Benefits Online

Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD) developed a great tool which allows veterans, service members, and their families to access and manage their benefits.

eBenefits is a joint VA/DoD web portal that provides resources and self-service capabilities to veterans, service members, and their families to research, access and manage their VA and military benefits and personal information. eBenefits uses secure credentials to allow access to personal information and gives users the ability to perform numerous self-service functions. It also provides a list of links to other sites that provide information about military and Veteran benefits. It is an essential way for veterans, service members, and their families to receive access to and service from VA and DoD.

To access eBenefits please visit www.ebenefits.va.gov . Before you are able to use the system you must register for an eBenefits account. You can choose from two levels of registration, Basic and Premium. To be able to register for an eBenefits account, you must be listed in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) and first obtain a DoD Self Service (DS) Logon. Note: If you attempt to register and are informed you have no DEERS record, VA will first need to verify your military service and add you to DEERS. This is most likely for Veterans who served prior to 1982. Individuals should contact a VA Regional Office for assistance in being added to DEERS.
