The PACT Act and your VA benefits

The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances. This law helps us provide generations of Veterans — and their survivors — with the care and benefits they’ve earned and deserve.

  • > Expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf War, and post -911 eras.

  • > Adds more than 20 new presumptive conditions for burn pits 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.

If you're a Veteran or survivor, you can file now to apply for PACT Act-related benefits at the American Legion Post 189.
