VA has partnered with specialized contract examiners to resume in-person Compensation & Pension (C&P) exams related to disability benefits at their designated contract facilities (and not at VA medical facilities). Visit benefits.va.gov/cpexam for regular updates.
Effective September 1, 2020 the New York Regional Office will be opened to the public on a limited basis during the following hours: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm for benefits inquiries, and from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm for Veterans Readiness and Employment inquiries. This decision protects our older Veterans and those with underlying conditions as well as our employees.
Veterans can continue to get information about benefits or file claim for benefits by visiting our website at www.va.gov.Veterans with claims specific or other questions may request information via Inquiry Routing & Information System (IRIS) at https://iris.custhelp.va.gov or telephone at 1-800-827-1000.
Join us for live tele-townhalls scheduled to accomodate all our Veterans across the country.
