The eBenefits portal (www.ebenefits.va.gov) is a joint VA and Department of Defense project that provides Veterans, Servicemembers, their Families, and caregivers with self-service access to online benefits-related tools and information.
eBenefits is a "one-stop shop" for benefit applications, benefits information, and access to personal information, such as official military personnel documents. The portal provides two main services. It is a catalog of links to information on other websites about military and veterans benefits, and it provides a personalized workspace called My eBenefits, which gives quick access to all the online tools currently integrated into eBenefits.
Registered users can complete various tasks, including the following:
• apply for benefits
• download the DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty
• see the status of their disability compensation claims
• view payments
• update direct deposit information for certain benefits
• obtain a VA-guaranteed home loan Certificate of Eligibility
