FALLS CHURCH, Va. - The Department of Defense (DoD) family member account to access the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) has a new name and the Web site has a new look. It is now called "DS Logon." A DoD Self-Service Logon—or "DS Logon"—is a secure credential issued to uniformed service members, spouses, and other family members 18 and older who are eligible for benefits in the DEERS system. It allows access to secure DoD web applications.
A DS Logon electronically links a TRICARE beneficiary's identity to their medical records, pay and human resource systems, and allows them to access different web applications, such as the beneficiary web enrollment Web site https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/appj/bwe/.
To create a DS Logon, sponsors may use their CAC or MyPay pin in the DS Logon Access Manager at https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/dsaccess. Sponsors may request a DS Logon for themselves or a family member. A personal identification number (PIN) will be mailed along with instructions on how to activate the DS Logon. Family members can also request a DS Logon for themselves at a RAPIDS station when they are getting an identification card and the one-time PIN will be mailed to them.
