Change your address on file with VA

You can change your address in your VA.gov profile for certain VA benefits and services. But some departments keep your address in their own separate records, so you’ll need to contact them directly. Read on to learn about how to change your address on file with VA.

Change your address online in your VA.gov profile

When you change your address and other contact information online in your VA.gov profile, it updates across these VA benefits and services:

  • VA health care (including prescriptions, appointment reminders, lab and test results, and communications from your VA medical center)
  • Disability compensation
  • Pension benefits
  • Claims and appeals
  • Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E)
