Get a DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) Account

DS Logon is a secure ID that allows you to log in to multiple VA and DoD websites and apps using a single username and password. A DS Logon Level 1 (Basic) Account provides access to some features on some websites. A DS Logon Level 2 (Premium) Account is required before you can view personal information in VA and DoD systems. Any VA App that connects to VA’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) requires a DS Logon Level 2 Account.

DS Logon Accounts are available for Servicemembers, Veterans and Caregivers. If you do not have a DS Logon, or you are not sure, you can register, verify or update your DS Logon Account at the DoD DS Logon Access Center. To find out more, watch the How to Get a DS Logon video to learn how to register for a Level 2 eBenefits/DS Logon account or access the DS Logon Education App.

For your security, the process for acquiring a DS Logon Level 2 Account requires your identity to be authenticated through either: 1) In-person proofing at a VA Regional Office, or 2) VA telephone proofing.

For additional information on the proofing process, visit the My Access Center DS Logon Quick Guide.

NOTE: Even if you have a My HealtheVet Premium Account, you will still need to register for a DS Logon Level 2 Account to access any VA App that links to your VA electronic health record.
