eBenefits – VA and DoD Make It Convenient To Secure Your Benefits

The Pentagon and VA now allow troops, veterans, their famillies and survivors ready to access to information about benefits. A single and secure website is now online where you may obtain information, apply for benefits and perform numerous self-service features.


Users must register for either a Basic or Premium account to take advantage of all its features.

Basic Account: You can view benefits information and customize it to your particular needs and preference. It can be used to calculate retirement and insurance needs based on your current situation.

Premium Account: Access the status of pending disability claims and appeals, payment history and some military records, such as a DD-214.

You also can apply for Veterans Group Life Insurance (VGLI), and – based on eligibility – access Tricare, your disabled civil service preference, commissary, service verification and benefit verification letters.

Hearing aid batteries and prosthetic socks also may be ordered through eBenefits.

With each quarterly release of eBenefits, new tools and services are made available. More information on eBenefits can be obtained at the eBenefits link above.
