Veterans will soon be able to log in to just one Department of Veterans Affairs website to manage their benefits, apply for doctors' appointments, and determine their eligibility for programs. The website will go live around May 20, but will first be open to around 50 veterans to help beta test the new portal. By the end of the year, all veterans will be able to use Veterans.gov to manage more than 350 benefit programs without having to switch websites, call multiple numbers or file large amounts of redundant paperwork. Once veterans register, the new website will automatically know their eligibility levels for different programs and will tailor their experience using that information. The website will also notify the veteran of various programs they are eligible for but are not using.
