COVID-19 Claims Impact

Finding Assistance During COVID-19

Though many VFW offices remain closed to the public due to COVID-19, the VFW continues to provide service members, veterans, and their eligible dependents with safe, virtual assistance in obtaining VA benefits. Please contact one of our professionally trained, accredited representatives to assist with your VA claim.

You can find your local VFW Accredited Service Officer using the “Find a Service Officer” drop down menu on this page. If you are on active duty and seeking assistance with a Pre-Discharge claim, you may find your closest VFW Pre-Discharge Representative here. Due to the pandemic, many of our representatives are on telework status. As a result, we encourage you to contact our representatives using the email address provided. If you are having difficulty reaching your representative, please contact VFW National Veterans Service at


COVID-19 Processing Delays

VA has notified the VFW and our clients to expect potential delays with your claim during this COVID-19 period due to issues with exam completion and exam processing. Please stay in contact with your VFW Accredited Service Officer for status updates on your claim.
