Due to an abundance of caution with the COVID-19 pandemic, and to protect older Veterans and those with underlying medical conditions as well as our employees, VBA Regional Offices will be open by appointment only starting September 21, 2020. To schedule an appointment, please call (207) 621-6938. The Regional Office remains open, but will not accept walk-ins for claims assistance, counseling or other in-person services.
Currently, we do not anticipate a negative impact on claim and appeal processing. We also expect no disruption to the issuance of benefit payments.
