An eBenefits account is required to access information or perform operations concerning your benefits on eBenefits.VA.gov. To receive account logon credentials, you must be listed in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System and obtain a DS logon or have a Common Access Card.

Although you may access eBenefits.VA.gov through VA.gov, they are separate websites. Using eBenefits.VA.gov requires basic or premium registration. You can register on the website with the DS Logon Account Registration Wizard and by answering a short series of security questions.

The eBenefits.VA.gov website allows you to apply for and manage existing benefits and health matters. The eBenefits.VA.gov homepage features categories and concise links to a number of specific subjects, such as adding or removing dependents, vocational rehab and employment.

You can access more general subjects by clicking a heading link. Each heading link leads to a page of additional categories, from tracking the status of benefit claims and educational enrollment, to locating documents and letters, including VA letters, official military records with your DD 214, health records and personnel files.
