What are the requirements for getting a Basic eBenefits account?

To get a Basic account, you must meet the following requirements:


• You must be registered in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS).
Enrollment in DEERS is automatic for all service members and veterans who have served since 1982. Those who served prior to 1982 are being added from VA/DoD records.

 • You must have a DoD Self-Service Logon (DS Logon). A DS Logon is a secure identity (username and password) that is accepted by various DoD and VA self-service websites. If you are already registered in DEERS, you are eligible for a DS Logon. Once you have a DS Logon, it's valid for the rest of your life.
