You should use VONAPP if you are a U.S. military veteran who wants to apply for compensation, pension, or vocational rehabilitation benefits using the Internet. If you are now receiving any of those benefits, donít use VONAPP to apply for the same benefit or an increase in that benefit. Instead, contact the V A Regional Office which handles your benefit by calling 1-800-827-1000. Also, if you have a pending application for any of these benefits, donít apply for the same benefit again using VONAPP without checking with the V A Regional Office working on your application. Also, do not use VONAPP to notify V A about dependency or income changes on your current award. Contact your V A office and ask what they need from you for dependency or income changes.
Servicemembers should not submit an application using VONAPP until they call their V A Regional Office at 1-800-827-1000 to ensure that the VA Regional Office and their military post is participating in a pre-discharge program.

You should use VONAPP if you are a U.S. military veteran, a servicemember with at least 2 years of active duty, or a member of the Selected Reserve.

For example, if you have used all of your benefits based on your active duty and would now like to apply for benefits based upon your Selected Reserve service.
If you have a pending application, donít use VONAPP to
resubmit your claim. It will slow down processing. If you would like to know the
status of a pending claim contact the Regional Processing Office by calling
