ESO Portal Registration Information

What is the ESO Portal?

The ESO Portal is an online facility that makes it easier for advocates and pension officers in Ex-Service Organisations (ESO) to lodge claims and reviews.

Claim representatives can check claimants' DVA history and track progress of claims and reviews without the need to phone DVA or lodge an FOI request. ESOs can also claim DVA BEST funding in the portal.

ESOs use Provider Digital Access (PRODA), a secure login to access the ESO Portal.

How to access PRODA

Organisations can "self-register" to use the ESO Portal. Each portal "user" requires authorisation from the organisation to use the ESO Portal. This is a PRODA account.

PRODA is a secure login. By granting a PRODA account, the organisation verifies the identity of the user and vouches for their authority to access and share information using the Portal.

How to get a PRODA account
