Expanded Eligibility

The Defense Commissaries Agency (DeCA) and other federal agencies continue outreach efforts to veterans and caregivers covered by a 2020 commissary eligibility expansion opening the stores to more than 4.1 million potential new shoppers. These include designated primary caregivers (under VA's Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers), all Purple Heart recipients and former prisoners of war, and all veterans with VA-documented service-connected disabilities.


A VA News item from October 2022 includes links to help determine eligibility and details on other commissary benefits, including curbside pickup options. Get full eligibility details at this link.
