The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) Regional Offices will be closed to the public starting March 19. Regional offices will remain open, but will no longer accept walk-ins for claims assistance, scheduled appointments, counseling and other in-person services.
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 a 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) or telephone at 1-800-827-1000. VBA benefits and services provided to Veterans, families, and survivors will continue to be delivered throughout the duration of COVID-19 impacts.
Please continue to check www.va.gov for updates. You also may follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
