VA Regional Offices
There are 58 VA regional offices (ROs). There is at least one in every state, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Different divisions within the ROs include finance and administrative services, veterans readiness and employment, loan guaranty, district counsel, inspector general, and adjudication. Claims for compensation, pension, and education benefits are received by the RO’s adjudication division. Each adjudication division is headed by a Veterans Service Center Manager and is subdivided into an authorization unit and a rating activity.
