PACT ACT Information
The PACT Act expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam era, Gulf War era, and post-9/11 era.
The deadline to file a new claim, or to have an existing claim reviewed and have it backdated to the date the PACT Act was signed, is August 9th. If filed by this date any claims will be backdated.
If the claim is filed after August 9th, you will only receive payment from the date you filed.
So, if you are considering filing under the new presumptive in the PACT Act it be financially beneficial for you to do it before August 9th.
