2 November 2012 - As East Coast residents begin the process of rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy, we want to be sure you know what to do if your benefits were affected.
If you have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy, you should change your contact address with VA. You can do this within eBenefits, by contacting your closest VA Regional Office, or calling 1-800-827-1000.
If you have a VA Guaranteed Home Loan and that home received storm damage, you should read this fact sheet. The fact sheet also contains information for mortgage lenders and servicers regarding loans for homes guaranteed by VA that might have been damaged by Sandy.
If you receive monthly payments from VA, such as disability compensation, GI Bill living stipend, or others, you should experience no delay in payment if you receive an electronic funds transfer (EFT). Benefits due on November 1 were distributed as normal and should be available to you. read more>>>
