The Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes Veterans and beneficiaries are still being greatly impacted by COVID-19 and are committed to extending financial relief. VA is suspending certain debt collection actions through the year’s end.

“Veterans and their families should be focused on their health and safety during the pandemic,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “VA is taking action to give those with pending debts greater flexibility during these challenging times.”

For benefit debts, Veterans should contact the VA Debt Management Center at 1-800-827-0648.

For health care debts, Veterans should contact the Health Resource Center at 1-866-400-1238 or https://www.pay.gov for payments.
