Retired VA phone number putting Veterans’ information at risk

Retired VA phone number putting Veterans’ information at risk

The Department of Veterans Affairs established 1-800-MyVA411 (1-800-698-2411) in 2020 to help Veterans, their family members, caregivers, and survivors understand and access the broad spectrum of VA benefits and services.

This number is the current VALID number to use:  1-800-MyVA411 (1-800-698-2411)

VA’s previous information number, 1-844-MyVA311, was retired at that time. Since that transition, MyVA311 has been repurposed by a non-federal entity claiming to be a medical equipment provider. Veterans may try to call VA using the MyVA311 number and unintentionally divulge personal information.

This number is NO LONGER VALID.  DO NOT USE 1-844-MyVA311

It is imperative that Veterans are informed that 1-800-MyVA411 is the appropriate number to call for information about:

  • COVID-19 updates
  • Health care eligibility and enrollment
  • VA benefits, such as disability, compensation and pension, education programs, caregiver support, insurance, home loans, and burial headstones and markers among others
  • The nearest VA medical centers, benefits offices or cemeteries to Veterans, VA Medical Center operational updates and connection to VA Medical Center operators
  • Directory assistance and technical support for
  • Debt and payment options

Yours in Patriotism,
