PACT ACT

Hello Veterans,


Reminder that the deadline to file for PACT ACT benefits ends today, August 9th, 2023.


The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic substances.


The PACT Act will bring these changes:

  • Expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf War, and post-9/11 eras

  • Adds 20+ more presumptive conditions for burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic exposures

  • Adds more presumptive-exposure locations for Agent Orange and radiation

  • Requires VA to provide a toxic exposure screening to every Veteran enrolled in VA health care

  • Helps us improve research, staff education, and treatment related to toxic exposures

If you’re a Veteran or survivor, you can file claims now to apply for PACT Act-related benefits.
