You can’t change your name or date of birth online. The way you update this information depends on whether you’re enrolled in VA health care.
If you’re enrolled in VA health care, contact your nearest VA medical center.
If you’re not enrolled in VA health care, contact your nearest VA regional office.
What if my military information is wrong in my VA.gov profile?
You’ll need to get help changing this information in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). You can’t directly update the military service information in your VA.gov profile. Please contact the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC), and they'll work with you to get it updated.
You can call the DMDC at 800-538-9552. They're open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET (closed on federal holidays). If you have hearing loss, call TTY: 866-363-2883.
