 Women veterans call center:

Calling All Women Who Served in the United States Military! Do you know your Veteran status? Do you have a Veteran ID card? Should you receive any benefits from VA, like the GI Bill? Do you know what health care benefits you have earned? If you do not know the answer to even one of these questions, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has established the Women Veterans Call Center (WVCC) just for you. The WVCC staff is trained to provide women Veterans, their families, and caregivers about VA services and resources. They are ready to respond to your concerns. The call is free, and you can call as often as you like until you have the answers to
your questions. The Call Center is available M-F 08-2000 EST, and on Saturdays from 08-1830 EST. The number is – 1-855-VA-Women
Any women veteran can use the WVCC, even if they are not registered with the VA or enrolled in VA health care and/or receiving care. You do not need to have wartime or combat experience to be considered a Veteran. Women Veterans should enroll for health care benefits to ensure they receive the comprehensive benefits package offered through VA’s national health care system. A review of the 33,000 calls received to date found the most common reasons people call in to the Call Center are to learn about benefits and eligibility and to discuss issues they face like homelessness, maternity care, Military Sexual Trauma, and environmental exposures. At times, there are issues that the Call Center cannot immediately resolve. In those cases, they research the best course of action/ locate the appropriate resources, and call the Veteran back to help her address her issues and concerns
