I Got Out of Jail Last Week. How Do I Get My VA Benefits Restarted?

“I got out of jail last week. How do I get my VA benefits restarted?” – Jonah H.

In order to reinstate your benefits, you will need to send a copy of your official release papers to the VA Regional Office within one year. Be sure to include your Social Security number when you ask the VA to reinstate your benefits and use certified mail.
