Benefits Expanded for Veterans Exposed to Agent Orange

Posted: 2/18/2023

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 adds to the list of health conditions that are assumed (or “presumed”) to be caused by exposure to these substances. This law helps to provide generations of Veterans—and their survivors—with the care and benefits they’ve earned and deserve.

Vietnam-Era Eligibility

Based on the PACT Act, 2 new Agent Orange presumptive conditions have been added:

You may also be eligible for disability compensation based on other Agent Orange presumptive conditions. These conditions include certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, and other illnesses.
