What is a DS Logon?

What is a DS Logon?

A DS Logon is a secure identity (username and password) that is used by DoD and VA self-service websites, including eBenefits, to provide identity authentication. If you are already registered in DEERS, you are eligible for a DS Logon.  Once you have a DS Logon, it's valid for the rest of your life.

Your DS Logon username will include your first name, last name, and possibly a few numbers to make it unique.  You can set your own password, but it must follow strict password guidelines.  Passwords expire after 150 days.

Read the DoD Self-Service Logon FAQs page for more information.
