Over the years, things have a way of getting misplaced, even important paperwork like your military service records.

Here at DD214Direct, we sometimes hear from veterans who lost their DD214 shortly after they were discharged but didn't really see the need to order a new copy at the time. Now, when they are thinking about things like claiming benefits and applying for disability insurance, they realize they need a copy of their DD214 to show proof of eligibility.

As a company founded by veterans and for veterans, we understand the need to have your discharge paperwork on hand to prove that you served and were discharged honorably. In fact, a DD214 or equivalent is needed to claim nearly every veteran-aimed benefit—from mortgage assistance and health care benefits to funeral and burial services.

Get your DD214 faster when you order from DD214Direct.

Regardless of how much time has passed, we can help you retrieve a copy of your DD214, and in most cases much faster than if you were to order it on your own. Our highly efficient team of veteran advocates, military records researchers, IT professionals, and assertive government liaisons works diligently every day to track down and deliver your documents, even amid the recent delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before any more time passes, call DD214Direct today at 800.891.9285 or use our fast and simple online order form to get the ball rolling.

Veteran-owned DD214Direct helps you get the documents you need, when you need them.

Our cutting-edge technology platform and keen knowledge of government protocol and procedure allow us to deliver your documents faster than you could get them on your own. First, we digitize both your request and the returned documents, using electronic signatures to avoid extra time with the postal service. We also integrate email and fax throughout our entire process, while many agencies do not.

To further expedite the process, our team ensures your initial request is filled out properly the first time and includes the necessary supporting documentation so that it doesn't bounce back. In addition, we break up multiple requests (DD214, OMPF, etc.) so that each piece is handled separately and one does not delay the other.

Once your request is processed, DD214Direct becomes your personal advocate, working directly with the agency that holds your records (currently there are about 75 independent agencies) and immediately responding to any agency issues on your behalf. In many cases, DD214Direct is able to advance your request to a higher-priority workflow. Finally, we have team members at many locations to drop off and pick up documents.

Much like paying a small fee to have your taxes done by a professional, DD214Direct provides the service and convenience you’ve been hoping for, plus we make it a lot easier. Once we locate your DD214, we can email you a copy immediately—a service not offered by the government. And tracking your request through us is simple, so you never have to worry about long hold times and inconclusive answers.
