What is a DS Logon?
A DS Logon is a secure identity (username and password) that is used by DoD and VA self-service websites, including eBenefits, to provide identity authentication. 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.
Your DS Logon username will include your first name, last name, and possibly a few numbers to make it unique. You can set your own password, but it must follow strict password guidelines. Passwords expire after 150 days.
