VA office has been in operation in the Philippines since the U.S. Veterans Bureau was opened in 1922 (except during the Japanese occupation of WW II), and it is an integral part of the Unites States’ Mission to the Republic of the Philippines.
VA Regional Office (RO) and Outpatient Clinic (OPC) operate in Manila, Philippines. Both administrations are now co-located on US Embassy grounds. This illustrates the US Government’s continuing commitment to Veterans in the Philippines by providing a new state-of-the-art facility that provides a safer, more accessible "one-stop-shop" for all Veterans needs. The new building boasts new diagnostic equipment and increased clinical and administrative space to provide world-class health care and support Veterans claims for disability benefits. The USDVA-Manila staff includes 11 Americans and 221 Filipino employees working hard every day to serve Veterans of both our nations. The Manila Regional Office and Outpatient Clinic’s new address is 1501 Roxas Boulevard, 1302 Pasay City, Philippines.
The Regional Office administers compensation, pension, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment and education benefits to 15,000 beneficiaries. Monthly disbursement is approximately $15.6 million.
