Question

Which letter on eBenefits is for getting the commissary and exchange privileges? Is it the benefit summary one? There isn't a letter labeled commissary and exchange.

Go to ebenefits, "Letter Generator".  

Of the letters, click the 3rd one "Commissary".

Try getting at it from another way.  Or, just try these.  Its in my ebenefits secition.  That "may" mean you are not P and T, I have no idea.

Thanks broncovet. I'll try giving them a call tomorrow. All the letters say P and T, so I don't know what's going on.

You need to look in ebenefits as broncovet mention  under Letter Generation,.

it should have the commissary letter  that's where I got mine   but the military ID to go to a Military Base and get in line for the ID.

for you and  spouse?

TAKE THE NECESSARY PAPER WORK  & Letters and  Both drivers license  both Birth certificates and  both SS Cards  and marriage Licenes....all these need to be the original  they won't accept copies.

if your P&T you should have applications to ChampVA Insurance and forms  and applications for going  back to school  for your spouse kids and a EOB if your 100% P&T or  if your at a combined rating of 90% or less and IU was inferred.

I got an "under honorable conditions" discharge, so maybe that's why. Maybe I need to upgrade my discharge to honorable before I qualify for it.

I emailed IRIS and they said I do qualify for commissary privileges and they're going to send me a letter. Still not sure why it doesn't show up on eBenefits though. Oh well, problem solved!

Give it a few days   I think they been working on MyHealtheVet doing some upgrading.

 And if they are going to send you a Commissary  Letter that's fine.

 Also you may want to look into your DOD ID Card   go to any military base and have one made for you and spouse...you may need it later for discounts  ect,,,ect,,,

Be sure and take all the certificates  thet need  like Marriage License and birth certifcates, Drivers license  SS Cards  you need to bring the originals  with the state seal  raised   they will not accept copies.

btw, Congratulation on your 100% P&T Award   welcome to the P&T Club.

you may want to look into the DOD Card (Dept of Defense) to  keep in your wallet, you can use it to get into the commissary or any military base and also use it for discounts at local retailers like Home Depot   and even federal state park passes, free auto tags, or at a low cost of 4 to 12 bucks depending on your county tax office  ect,,ect,, it never expires  its permanent. 

its a good card for P&T Veteran to have in their possession.

Yes Buck its on my to.do list. Been dealing with a new house, getting married and working on Immigration for the wife. We hope to be home around September at the latest from Asia. We will get her CHAMPVA when she gets to America, and i plan to get us both a DoD ID. Plus, after we get her Permanant Residency taken care of she can get some College Education through my Chapter 35. It's a slow process all together for us, but we've learned patience is key. 😉
