VA benefits portal at nearly 1.7 million users


The Department of Veterans Affairs has nearly 1.7 million veterans and service members registered for its eBenefits portal that provides online information and access to a wide variety of military and veteran benefits resources, the agency said.

The numbers have exceeded the agency’s 2012 fiscal year goal of having 1.65 million users on the site and puts it on track to meet its 2013 goal of 2.5 million users.

“We know that three out of four veterans who use VA services want to connect online, so we must be there for them with the information they need,” said VA Undersecretary for Benefits Allison Hickey.
