The Veterans Administration has a variety of benefits for qualified veterans such as health benefits, education benefits and disability compensation. Whether you have a pending claim with the VA or you need to check what benefits you currently have available to you, the VA has a few systems in place that allow you to check benefits.
Call the VA directly and speak to a representative about VA benefits.
Education benefits 888-442-4551
All other VA benefits 800-827-1000
Send the VA a question using the Inquiry Routing and Information System (IRIS) (see Resources). IRIS allows you to send the VA a question regarding the status of a claim for benefits or ask a question about specific VA benefits.
Visit a Veterans Affairs facility to speak to a VA representative in person about VA benefits. VA facilities are in every state and the VA has an online facility locator to help you find the nearest VA facility.
