I’m a veteran with a VA overpayment and/or medical debt which I have to repay, or is being deducted from my VA and/or Social Security benefits. Can I ask the VA to stop collection of this debt?

To help with financial relief during the COVID-19 pandemic, the VA Debt Management Center paused collection on some VA benefit debt.  As of October 1, 2021, the Debt Management Center is sending out debt notification letters but will continue to offer debt repayment and relief options, including further suspension of collection of your debt.  If your VA debt was being collected through the U.S. Department of Treasury, you will receive a notification letter from the Department of Treasury to tell you when collection will be resumed.  If you have questions about a VA benefit overpayment debt, you can contact the VA Debt Management Center at 1-800-827-0648 or review their COVID-19 debt relief options at VA COVID-19 Debt Relief Options For Veterans And Dependents | Veterans Affairs.   For medical care co-payment debt issues, Veterans can contact the Health Resource Center at 1-888-827-4817 to ask about repayment options.
