Veteran Debt Relief During COVID-19 Act of 2020

This bill defers certain debts arising from benefits under laws administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) during the covered period, which is the COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019) emergency period plus the 60 days following the end of such period.

Specifically, the bill prohibits the VA from doing the following during the covered period:

  • collecting or recording certain debts,
  • issuing notice of certain debts to a person or consumer reporting agency,
  • allowing any interest to accrue on certain debts, or
  • applying any administrative fee to certain debts.

The VA may collect a payment from a person who elects to make such payment during the covered period.
