|The VA announced this week its commitment to extend debt relief to veterans impacted by natural disasters. The department recognizes veterans and their beneficiaries are negatively impacted by the wildfires and hurricanes prompting the offering of financial-debt relief. This includes the suspension of debt-collection actions for up to 90 days or extending repayment terms on preexisting VA debts, whichever the veteran prefers.
To request assistance for VA financial debt relief, contact the VA Debt Management Center at 1-800-827-0648.
