A guide to registering a MyLegion account for membership benefits

If you are a new or longtime member of The American Legion, member benefits are available to you on one platform – MyLegion.org.

MyLegion.org is a free and secure website for American Legion and Sons of The American Legion members, as well as administrative officers of American Legion posts, districts and counties. Users can view their MyLegion.org membership account on any device with web access to quickly access member benefits.

As a registered user of MyLegion, you can:

- Manage profile information such as your home address, phone number and email, and make updates.

- Print a current membership card that you can have your post adjutant sign.

- Renew membership or set up automatic renewal that is safe and secure.

- View member-only discounts from retail to travel.

- Manage American Legion subscriptions to e-newsletters and The American Legion Magazine.

- Find an American Legion accredited service officer to help with VA benefits.

What to know before creating a MyLegion account:

-  Register using the email on your membership record. Registering with a different email will not include membership details or officer/committee activity. To update or verify the email on your membership record, contact your department headquarters.

-  Do not register with a post, squadron, county or district account. All MyLegion accounts are individual member accounts. Access to post and squadron membership management and online membership processing, reports and rosters are provided to members that hold an adjutant or commander position.

-   Do not share emails. Only one email can be registered.
