DS Logon 2.0: Department of Defense Self Service Logon Registration Now Available Online

In February 2012, the Department of Defense (DoD) Self-Service Access Center enhanced its DoD Self Service Logon (DS Logon) registration capability. Now eligible parties, DoD sponsors, spouses, and dependents (18 and older), and retirees and veterans who are in Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting Systems (DEERS), can register on line and avoid the hassle of in person registration or the inconvenience of waiting for a username and password to be issued via the U.S. mail.


DS Logon is a secure, self-service logon ID that allows Beneficiaries affiliated with the DoD or the Veterans Affairs (VA) access to several websites using a single username and password.


A DS Logon supports the Personnel Identity Protection (PIP) Directive and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) e-Authentication guidance. It provides a high level of authentication assurance in situations where Common Access Card (CAC) authentication is not available.


A DS Logon allows web access to several applications. It is currently available at:





•Beneficiary Web Enrollment (BWE)






•Transferability of Education Benefits (TEB)



•VA's eBenefits portal



•DS Logon Self-Service website



Additional web sites may use DS Logon in the future.
