Wounded warriors and their families can apply and track benefits offered by VA and DoD by using eBenefits, which saw an increase in user registration in 2010 by more than 100,000.
The President’s Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors (Dole/Shalala) was established by Executive Order 13426 in March 2007. The Executive Order recommended the creation of a My eBenefits (aka eBenefits) web portal. The portal would serve wounded, injured, and ill Service Members, Veterans, their families, and their caregivers. It would provide a single sign-on, central access point to online benefits and related services.
True to its mission, the eBenefits portal is a one-stop shop for benefits-related online tools and information. eBenefits serves Wounded Warriors, Veterans, Service members, their families, and their caregivers.
eBenefits provides two main services:
- A catalog of links to other sites that provide information about military and Veteran benefits; and
- A personalized workspace called My eBenefits that provides quick access to eBenefits tools. Using eBenefits tools, you can complete various tasks. You can apply for benefits, download your DD 214, and view your benefits status.
Service Members, Veterans, and their family members can register for eBenefits. Registration gives you access to secure features. It also gives you the ability to personalize features to suit your needs.
