The Department of Veterans Affairs is introducing 1-844-MyVA311 (1-844-698-2311) as a source for veterans and their families who do not know what number to call. This new national toll-free number will help eliminate the feeling of frustration and confusion that veterans and their families have expressed when navigating the 1000-plus phone numbers that currently exist. With 1-844-MyVA311, veterans, families, and caregivers can access information about VA services like disability, pension, healthcare eligibility, enrollment, and burial benefits, in addition to a self-service locator to find the nearest VA facility. And if they are looking for immediate assistance with housing or are having a mental health crisis, MyVA311 will route callers to the Homeless Veteran help line and the Veterans Crisis Line. Meanwhile, all of the existing VA numbers will continue in service.
