Single logon offers retirees simple access to secure sites

OINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Airmen concerned about losing access to benefits web pages once they retire should establish their Department of Defense self-service logon identification account today, Air Force Personnel Center officials suggested.

The common logon, developed by the DOD and Veterans’ Administration allows beneficiaries of DOD or Veterans’ Affairs programs to access various benefit websites using a single username and password. All military members are required to establish an account, said Karen Bennett, the AFPC Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System Operations branch chief.

“There are a number of actions the DS logon can help you accomplish when you access the various websites, like the eBenefits, milConnect, and more,” said Bennett. “You’ll be able to access your personal information, health care eligibility and personnel records, and can review your Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance elections or convert SGLI to Veterans’ Group Life Insurance after separation — all from one logon account.”

Because access to the account does not require a common access card, Airmen, family members and retirees will be able to access their information 24/7 from their home computer.

“Although it doesn’t require the CAC, this is a secure self-service tool, so your personally identifiable information, health information and other sensitive data won’t be in danger of compromise,” Bennett said. “Enrolling is simple — go to the website, follow the prompts and in no time, you’ll have the convenience and security of one-stop benefits access.”

To access the site, go to https://myaccess.dmdc.osd.mil/dsaccess/ and follow the instructions. For more information about other personnel issues, visit the Air Force Personnel Services website at https://mypers.af.mil.
