Federal Benefits Programs

Online Benefit Information

The DVA and the DoD have a one-stop source of benefit information and personal data for veterans and their dependents. The website www.ebenefits.va.gov is available now. Signing on for "premium" registration can take up to a week, but "basic" registration is relatively quick. With "premium" registration you will be able to check on the status of your compensation and pension, view your DVA payment history, apply for the home loan certificate of eligibility, and request copies of your military record. Your premium registration information will come in a letter from Department of Defense, Human Resources Activity, Defense Manpower Data Center about a week after you make your online request. Follow the directions in the letter to complete your registration. Note: your user name may change to firstname.lastname (all in lower case) after registration.

The 2013 Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors is available online.

The DVA website is www.va.gov
