Can anyone register for a My HealtheVet account?

A registration message indicates my information does not match VA's information. What should I do?

When you register for a Basic account, My HealtheVet matches your information against your VA/DoD records. This includes your first name, middle name, last name, Social Security Number (SSN), gender, and date of birth (DOB). This process verifies your identity.

If your registration information does not match:

  • Compare your information against other VA records, such as a VA prescription label or your VHIC/VIC card. Does your full name, SSN, gender and DOB match?

  • Verify your personal information in your My HealtheVet profile

  • If you left the military before 1979, you may not be in the Department of Defense (DoD) electronic system of records.

  • If you are sure your registration information matches your VA/DoD information, there may still be other reasons why you are getting this message. Use the Contact link so we can assist you with this problem.

After I register, am I able to view the information I entered?

Note: When you are issued a Basic and a Premium level account, your personal traits (full name, Social Security number (SSN), date of birth (DOB) and gender) are locked down on your My Profile page when they match your VA/DoD records.
