Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests
The Department of Veterans Affairs will accept FOIA requests electronically.
The Department of Veterans Affairs Freedom of Information Offices are decentralized. Our office does not maintain Military Service Records, Veteran’s Medical or Benefit Records. FOIA related requests, as they relate to Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Records, National Cemetery Administration, Military Service Records, and Other Administration Records may be submitted through the VA’s FOIA website. Please read all applicable sub sections including but not limited to “How to Submit a FOIA Request,” “Find your local VBA regional office,” and “Find your VHA medical facility.”
The Department of Veterans Affairs maintains a collection of documents that are available electronically on the Internet. These public records include VA statements of policy, staff manuals, as well as high-profile records that have been previously requested by another member of the public and is likely to become the subject of another FOIA request. It is likely that the information you seek has already been made available on the VA FOIA reading room. Redacted versions of OALC records requested are available via the OALC FOIA Library.
