Transmittal 2011 - 26: VA/PARIS Code Dictionary


Attached is the VA/PARIS Code Dictionary in preparation for the first data match with the new VETNET layout. The following are two known defects that will be corrected after the November PARIS match:

  • In some situations, the deductions field (#63 and 64) will not contain the correct amount and these fields should be disregard until the February match.
  • The apportionee SSN field will not always be populated due to the limited amount data stored by the VA.
