Unveiling the PACT Act: A Milestone for Veteran's Health and Compensation​

What You Need to Know

  • Veterans are now eligible to possibly receive back pay retroactively to August 10, 2022
  • To have your benefits backdated to August 10, 2022, you must file your PACT Act claim or your intent to file by August 9, 2023
  • There’s no expiration date for benefits applications under the PACT Act
  •  If you miss the deadline, the back payment you’re eligible to receive will be calculated from the day your claim was officially filed, rather than being retroactive to August 10, 2022

            Introducing the PACT Act: a beacon of acknowledgment for Veterans who have suffered in silence for far too long. The PACT Act is a historic legislation that has expanded the scope of benefits by adding over 20 burn pits and other toxic exposure presumptive conditions to the eligibility criteria for Veterans disability ratings. To qualify for many conditions, the disability in question must have a direct connection to your military service. For many health conditions, it is the veterans responsibility to provide viable evidence that their affliction was indeed a consequence of their service. The great thing about the PACT Act is that it alleviates this burden of service connection for many veterans who fit the location and condition criteria.  If you have any of the following presumptive conditions, you may be eligible for VA benefits.
