Our History

In March 2007, the President's Commission on Care for Returning Wounded Warriors (Dole/Shalala) was established by Executive Order 13426. The Commission recommended the creation of a Web portal that would provide Service Members, Veterans, their families, and authorized caregivers with a single sign-on, central access point to clinical and benefits information. eBenefits is the result of the Commission's recommendation.

The National Resource Directory (NRD) became part of eBenefits in 2014. The NRD is a partnership among DoD, VA, and the Department of Labor. Information found in the NRD comes from federal, state, and local govenment agencies; Veteran and military service organizations; non-profit and community-based organizations; academic institutions; and professional associations that provide assistance to Wounded Warriors and their families.
