Veterans who received benefits overpayments from the Department of Veterans Affairs soon will receive notification letters regarding their status. VA had deferred overpayment recoupment from last April 3 to Jan. 1 because of the hardships it may have on veterans who are coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. Veterans still will be eligible, when applicable, for avenues of relief – to include extended repayment plans, waivers, compromises and temporary hardship suspensions. The agency also plans to pause repayment collections through this October for veterans who ask for relief because they continue to endure hardships.
