As part of an ongoing campaign to appeal to female veterans, the Veterans Affairs Department last week established a hotline exclusively for women to answer questions about services like health care, education benefits and claims.

The call center — at 1-855-VA-WOMEN, or 1-855-829-6636 — is staffed with VA employees to provide information on VA resources and referrals to homeless veterans services, mental health care and Vet Centers, according to VA.

“Some women veterans may not know about high-quality VA care and services available to them,” VA Secretary Eric Shinseki said April 23. “The hotline will allow us to field their questions and provide critical information about the latest enhancements in VA services.”
