The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has introduced a new resource contact telephone number to help veterans and their families get the information they need – faster than before.
This new national toll-free number will help eliminate the feeling of frustration and confusion that veterans and their families have expressed when navigating the 1000-plus telephone numbers that currently exist in the VA system.
844-MyVA311 (844-698-2311) is a go-to source for veterans and their families who don’t know what number to call. With 844-MyVA311, veterans, families, and caregivers can access information about VA services like disability, pension, health care eligibility, enrollment, and burial benefits, in addition to a self-service locator to find the nearest VA facility.
If they’re looking for immediate assistance with housing or are having a mental health crisis, MyVA311 will route callers to the Homeless Veteran help line and the Veterans Crisis Line immediately.
