VA, DoD Team Up to Improve eBenefits by Migrating National Resource Directory
The Department of Veterans Affairs, in collaboration with the Departments of Defense and Labor, will be integrating the National Resource Directory (NRD) into eBenefits to improve access to health care, benefits information and more. Veterans will be able to find enhanced self-service capabilities and resources from one site, improving access to information and assistance. The NRD offers more than 15,000 resources that have met quality assurance criteria to ensure that every program and organization listed is acting in good faith and making a positive difference for Wounded Warriors, Service Members, Veterans, their Families.
While some functionality will change, the majority of existing capabilities will still be available after the integration allowing the NRD to continue to address the needs of Wounded Warriors, Service Members, Veterans, and their Family Members by providing direct access to resources. Integrating the NRD into eBenefits is just one step the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) is taking to improve access to health care and benefits for Wounded Warriors, Service Members, Veterans, and their Family Members. eBenefits users can also now seamlessly access MyPay with single sign on and order prescription refill, secure messaging with physician and view medical appointments through the MyHealtheVet Blue Button. For more information, go to https://www.ebenefits.va.gov or call VA’s toll-free number at 1-877-222-VETS (8387) or email the NRD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
