Veterans On-Line Application (VONAPP) Transition
As of September 27, 2017, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will no longer operate the VONAPP website which formerly hosted many applications for VA benefits. On August 13, 2017, VA stopped accepting applications for VA benefits through the Veterans On-Line Application (VONAPP), all forms for applications have already transitioned from the website. Veterans, Service members and family members may continue online submissions through VA’s Vets.Gov and eBenefits websites.
The following categories of applicants are the last to transition from VONAPP:
Education Beneficiaries – Veterans applying for education benefits will now submit benefits applications through vets.gov. This applies to forms 22-1990E, 22-5490, 22-1995, 22-1990E, and 22-5495 previously available on VONAPP.
Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Beneficiaries – Veterans and qualified dependents will now apply for benefits through eBenefits.
Pension and Burial Beneficiaries – Veterans and Survivors applying online for pension and burial benefits from VA will now do so exclusively through Vets.gov. Pension applicants will now find form 21P-527EZ at https://www.vets.gov/pension/apply/. Individuals applying for burial benefits may do so using form 21P-530 at https://www.vets.gov/burials-and-memorials/survivor-and-dependent-benefits/.
