More About the Pittsburgh Regional Office

Processing Claims for Overseas Veterans

The Pittsburgh RO processes claims for Veterans living in most foreign countries, with the exception of Manilla. A specialized team in the Veterans Service Center handles processing of the foreign workload. Our responsibilities include obtaining and translating medical evidence and examinations for Veterans living overseas. We also communicate with overseas embassies and doctors through two separate mailboxes. Since the toll-free number cannot be used for Veterans residing overseas, they can contact us by calling 412-395-6272. We also process applications from and provide VR&E services to about 800 Veterans living abroad. Our foreign workload makes up a little more than half of our overall VR&E workload.

Assuming Benefits Discharge Responsibilities for Certain Overseas Locations

The Pittsburgh RO also handles a portion of the Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) intake activities in Korea and Germany.
