A common question in my email is: “how do I change the bank account into which my own disability payments are direct deposited?” That’s a great question. Changing direct deposit account info is quick & easy. eBenefits.Va.Gov
There are three ways to change your own direct deposit account info: online, via phone and via the mail. I strongly recommend that you utilize the VA eBenefits system. It is your best choice for speedy service.
- Online, you can create a VA eBenefitsaccount and make changes through the account. An eBenefit account will also give you 24/7 access to your payment history, GI bill information, and all sorts of other items. If you receive VA benefits, you should create a VA eBenefits account. It is be the fastest and most convenientway for you to conduct any business with the VA.
- Via mail, fill out and send the V.A Form 24-0296. You could find it here: http://vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-24-0296-ARE.pdf. The directions are on the form. eBenefits.Va.Gov
- Via telephone, by calling 1-877-838-2778. I have looked at this one and I wonder how they could verify that you’re actually the person calling. If you find out, please let me know. I’m curious.
