To ease financial difficulties during the pandemic, the VA Debt Management Center (DMC) suspended issuing debt notification letters and suspended collection action on debts established after April 3, 2020, through January 1, 2021. DMC also offered suspensions or extended repayment plans for debts established prior to April 3, 2020.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN 2021
If your debt was established after April 3, 2020, DMC will issue your debt notification letter(s) starting in January 2021. If you have debt that was established prior to April 3, where collections have been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your suspension will end on January 1, 2021, and the DMC will resume withholding from your VA benefits to pay the debt effective with your February 1, 2021, benefit payment. If you do not receive VA benefits, your payment will be due to DMC by February 1, 2021.
