Is there a way I can verify my ebenefits account without going to the ATL RO?

As a Veteran you have several options available to you to obtain a DS Logon. These options are listed in order to provide you with the highest level of access as quickly as possible. You must be enrolled in Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) to obtain a DS Logon.

  • Remote Proofing
    This process is used to verify your identity with the VA remotely (via telephone). To be eligible for this option you must have previously established your identity with the VA and have the ability to verify your latest Electronic Fund Transfers (EFT) on the day of Remote Proofing. To take advantage of this option, please call 800-827-1000 and have the following information available.
    • Full name (Last name used while in service may be different than what is provided)
    • Social Security Number
    • Checking or Savings Account Number
    • Dollar amount of most recent Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT)
    • In-person Proofing at a VA Regional Office (VARO)
      This process is used to verify your identity in person with the VA. You can visit one of the 50+ VA Regional Offices throughout the country (See VA Regional Office Locations below).
      • Before visiting a VARO, please locate your two I9 Identity Documents. (See I-9 Documents Listed Below)
      • While at the VARO, please make sure the Operator has your current address in the DS Logon Access Station.
      • Your Activation letter, containing your activation pin number, will be sent to your address of record within 5-12 business days.
      • Upgrade via In-person Proofing at a VA Regional Office (VARO)
        This process is similar to the process mentioned above, however, you already have a Basic account. As a result, you are simply looking to Upgrade your DS Logon to a Premium account.
        • Before visiting a VARO, please locate your two I9 Identity Documents. (See I-9 Documents Listed Below)
        • VARO personnel will automatically upgrade your access level from Basic to Premium, using the DS Access Station tool provided to them by DMDC.
        • You will then be able to use your newly upgraded Premium account at home to access various VA and DoD sites.
        • No Activation Letter will be mailed to you.
        • Basic Registration
          You may obtain a DS Logon Basic account by completing a simple registration process online. However, many applications do not allow access with a Basic account. Therefore, it is recommended that you obtain a DS Logon account by completing one of the options listed above.
