The VA has created the Veterans Benefits Banking Program (VBBP).The Veterans Benefits Banking Program is a partnership between the VA and 43 banks (National and FDC approved) that a veteran can sign up with for free (no charges or fees) to have an account.
The VA’s goal to have as many veterans as possible sign up for a direct deposit account. It is targeted at recipients who are still receiving their check by mail or an issued a debit card (the green card many homeless vets have). This eliminates service charges and fees for using the debit card or cashing a check.
The wildfires in CA and OR have created problems for veterans expecting their checks in the mail because they’ve had to evacuate or mail is being delayed/not delivered due to safety measures. This is causing a financial burden for those veterans. Here is the link to the VBBP page: https://www.benefits.va.gov/benefits/banking.asp
