When requesting information contained in VA files other than as explained in GN 00904.082 F., G. and H., send Form SSA-562-U3 to the DO parallel to the VA office from which you
received SSA-24 or to which you are sending Form VA-4182 (RS 01702.410).

serves the claimant's current mailing address. Include the veteran's VA claim number

the veteran's residence at the time of death, or in life cases his/her current mailing
address. Always include the veteran's military service serial number if available.
