Veterans and their beneficiaries now have additional options for receiving VA benefits via direct deposit, as well as access to financial services at participating banks.
If you already have a bank account but are not using direct deposit, sign in or create a VA.gov account to change your direct deposit information.
We partnered with the Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA) »
We offer Veterans and service members safe, reliable and inexpensive ways to receive and manage their VA monetary benefits through banking institutions that specialize in services for military personnel, Veterans and their families through federally-insured financial products, services and education.
VA’s collaboration with AMBA will leverage its consortium of military-friendly financial institutions that cater to service members.
“VBBP offers another way to simplify banking choices to help eligible Veterans select the right bank for themselves and their families. The VA and AMBA are proud to provide this opportunity to connect veterans with banks that understand their needs.” - Robert Wilkie, Secretary of Veterans Affairs
