Can you tell me how to remove a VSO in eBenefits? I am no longer wanting to use one and would like to cut out the middle person. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
I don't think you can Revoke your VSO on e benefits.
Here is how that works.
By appointing a new representative, the previous representative is revoked automatically. If you have not appointed a new representative, but want to move forward to revoke representation by your current power of attorney, then adhere to the following:
Write a statement using VA form 21-4138 — www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/vba-21-4138-are.pdf — to indicate you no longer want to be represented by your current veterans service organization or individual.
Submit a copy of the statement by mail or hand delivery to both VA and your current representative. If you mail the letter, receive a tracking receipt and signature.
Keep a copy of the letter or statement for your records.
Any new representative will want to review your claim carefully to offer you the best guidance; this may take some time. Some veterans service organizations do not take representation when an appeal is active at the Board of Veterans Appeals, so please don’t wait to seek assistance. Please review all letters from VA carefully and take any required steps to preserve your rights.
