The VA's lobby is open to the public Monday - Thursday (normal operating hours) and closed on Friday for administrative purposes.  We continue to process claims, provide emergency relief and answer inquiries.  At this time, we are not scheduling sit-down appointments in our inter-offices.  Clients are instructed on what documentation is needed to file a claim for benefits and/or relief and they deliver the information to us in-person or scan/email or fax or send the information through the postal system.  We even provide curbside service, if requested.  We will conduct a telephone interview when completing the forms for benefits/relief and inform the client when everything is ready for their review and signature.  If client’s needs to drop-off documentation on a Friday, they can push it under the door for us to find.
