Back in 2012, The Department of Veterans Affairs integrated a new online system to better assist veterans, service members, and their families in managing their benefits and program placement. The eBenefits Portal is a one-stop website where service members have access to all sorts of information meant to make their lives easier.
There are many new benefits to this site. You are now able to apply for benefits directly, check your application status, access important documents, and browse crucial VA links. Veterans can also download copies of their VA letters and access their education benefits. Job training and career information are also available through eBenefits. This convenient access makes streamlines any paperwork processes that you would need your VA records for.
Veterans can even get a copy of the VA Home Loan Certificate of Eligibility, once they have created an account. The VA Home Loan Guarantee allows service members, veterans, and their families a loan to either buy or improve their home as long as they meet certain requirements.
One of the most important benefit that the eBenefits online portal gives veterans access to is all of their Tricare and health insurance information. Having access to this information from home will make retaining medical records, finding doctors, and accessing disability information much easier. This will also likely, mean you will be able to access any lien information, if you’ve been in an accident. Having the ability to access this information will make it easier to keep track of claims.
