Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Benefits and Services

The Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs advocates on behalf of Florida’s 1.5 million veterans by ensuring they receive benefits and resources earned through their service to our country. More than one-third of veterans do not receive benefits, even though they have earned them. With the help of the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, these servicemembers are connected with the information and resources needed so they can take advantage of the services and benefits they so richly deserve. We thank our veterans for their dedication and sacrifice to our country. To learn more about resources and benefits that may be available, please click here.

    Scammers Target the Veterans Choice Program Phone Line Scammers Target the Veterans Choice Program Phone Line

    The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) warns veterans about a fraudulent phone line that emulates the Veterans Choice Program’s (VCP) line. The fake phone number, 1-800-606-8198, is very similar to the correct phone number, 1-866-606-8198, which allows veterans to check their eligibility and ask questions about the program. The fake phone line offers callers a $100 rebate if the caller provides a credit card number. It does not state that the caller has reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the VCP phone line.

    If you are unsure you have reached the correct phone line, hang up and dial 1-866-606-8198. The phone line will state that you have reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
