If you receive monthly compensation, pension or education allowance, call Debt Management Center before making an online payment. We want to make sure we are not offsetting an amount of your monthly benefits that will cause us to over collect your debt.
PLEASE DO NOT MAKE PAYMENTS ON THIS WEB SITE IF:
YOU ARE PAYING A VA MEDICAL CO-PAYMENT. DMC does not collect nor have information concerning medical billing statements. If you wish to make a VA medical co-payment click here. If you need help completing the co-payment form call 866-400-1238.
YOU HAVE RECEIVED A COLLECTION LETTER FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY GIVING YOU 10 DAYS TO MAKE PAYMENT TO AVOID FURTHER COLLECTION ACTION. If Treasury has sent you this letter, making a payment on this Web site will only delay application of the payment and will not preclude Treasury from adding fees to the amount you owe. Questions regarding Treasury collection should be directed to the telephone number on the Treasury collection letter.
YOU HAVE RECEIVED COLLECTION LETTERS OR PHONE CALLS FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION AGENCY OR LAW FIRM. This means the Department of the Treasury has referred your account for private collection. Making payments on this Web site will delay application of those payments to your account and will not preclude fees charged by the collection agencies or law firms.
ARE YOU CURRENTLY DRAWING VA BENEFITS AND PAYING THE BALANCE OF YOUR DEBT?
If you are currently drawing VA benefits, it is possible that your debt has been offset from your next benefit check. To avoid overpaying your debt, you should contact the Debt Management Center at 800 827-0648 to confirm your balance before making a payment. If you make a payment and your debt balance is already cleared through offset, it can take up to 60 days to refund your payment. So please call before you make your payment. If you have difficulty getting through to DMC, we ask for your patience. We have added more telephone lines and operators and are making every effort to improve service.
