Miscellaneous topics concerning benefits



Where to send claims and evidence:


VA has implemented a centralized mailing address. Instead of sending correspondeces to the individual regional offices, which was the case before, now VA has one "intake center" that receives, sorts, and uploads all submitted documents and correpsondences to what's called a "Centralized Mail" portal to the individual regaional office. So, instead of sending your claims and/or evidence to your local regional office, you should now send it to the following address;

Changing your mailing address:


Always inform VA if you move. If you move and forget to notify VA, they may discontinue your benefits until they know your whereabouts. Therefore, it is imperative that you notify VA immediately of any address change. To do so, simply fillout the VAF 20-572 and send it to the claims intake center.
