Setting up a password for ebennies and VA.Gov is a bit more involved than with other websites password requirements.  I too had difficulty initially.  It is very important to carefully read and follow involved instructions on ebennies to create a password as I had to write a list of their requirements for creating the PW.

Once you have created a PW for ebennies then you can use this same one to log onto VA.Gov.  However VA.GOV will then send you a test message to your phone with an 4 or 5 number code you will then have to add to your login info.  The code is only good for about 10 minutes then you will have to start all over.

For username you can use your myhealthvet username if you have a myhealthvet account.

When logging onto ebennefits you will have to place a check mark in the small box above the paragraph in bold type just above the username and password blocks.  I know this is as clear as mud but best I can do.  Good luck.

@Dustoff 11 is correct. You only need one account.

This should help:

1. Go to va.gov

2. Click "Sign In" at the top right

3. On the left, if you have a DS Logon, MyHealtheVet, or ID.me account, just sign on with it. If you don't have one of those accounts, on the left and below the ---- OR ---- section, click the ID.me Create an ID.me account. Follow those instructions. 

If you have created the account, but are having trouble logging in, on the same sign in page, you can go to the bottom left and click the links under "Having trouble signing in?" for more help.
