PACT ACT: The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances. Learn more about the key provisions of the law, how it will impact VA care and common misconceptions, or to contact a VFW Service Officer HERE
PACT ACT DEADLINE: Those who file a claim before the Aug. 9 deadline could be eligible for thousands of dollars of backdated benefits for both veterans and their surviving families. There’s no deadline to apply for VA benefits. But if you file your claim—or submit your intent to file—by Aug. 9, 2023, you may receive benefits paid back to Aug. 10, 2022, under the PACT Act.
