Should I create a Login.gov or ID.me account to sign in to VA.gov?
We encourage you to create a Login.gov account.
Soon all VA websites will follow a new sign-in process through VA.gov with Login.gov as the recommended account.
Login.gov is a secure U.S. government account that meets modern security standards. You can use Login.gov to access VA benefits, services, and information in a single, secure account. And you can use your account to manage other government benefits and services (like Social Security benefits and federal job applications).
You can also choose to create an ID.me account.
ID.me is a commercially-owned account that also meets modern security standards. You can use your ID.me account to manage VA and other government benefits and services.
