VA Form 24-0296A International Direct Deposit Enrollment

What Is VA Form 24-0296A?

VA Form 24-0296A, International Direct Deposit Enrollment is a document issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and used to enroll in the direct deposit program internationally. Direct deposit is an automatic transfer of benefits directly to the veteran's or beneficiary's account. The VA Direct Deposit Enrollment form is a document used to enroll in direct deposit or to make a change to an already existing direct deposit account.

It is required to complete a separate form for each type of federal payments which include supplemental income, social security, benefits, etc. Currently, the VA allows veterans to receive payments such as disability compensation and vocational rehabilitation payments in 65 countries. There are several advantages to using international direct deposit:

  • It is convenient. Veterans and their beneficiaries living abroad can use online services at their convenience;
  • Benefits arrive on time and veterans have access to their benefits instantly;
  • It saves money by reducing expenses associated with printing;
  • It is secure, as the funds are transferred electronically.

The form was last released by the VA in March 2018 with all previous editions obsolete. A VA Form 24-0296A fillable version is available for download through the link below.
