In response to the current environment with COVID-19, the VA Debt Management Center (DMC) is suspending all actions on Veteran debts under the jurisdiction of the Treasury Department for sixty days.  We will evaluate an extension of this timeline should the situation with COVID-19 warrant. If the suspension is extended, we will update our website www.va.gov/debtman  to reflect the change and automatically extend suspensions for affected Veterans.  Website for VA Suspension of Debt  

We are also suspending collection action or extending repayment terms on preexisting VA debts, as the Veteran prefers. Please continue to encourage Veterans and family members affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus) who have a VBA benefit debt and need temporary financial relief to contact the DMC at 1-800-827-0648 to request assistance.
