VA to Process PACT Act Claims Immediately

This month the Department of Veterans Affairs announced that staff members will immediately start processing toxic exposure claims for veterans with terminal illnesses – officials said that these veterans will receive the benefits as soon as possible.

According to an article published by Military Times, “Payout of those benefits originally was scheduled to be phased in over the next few years, but administration officials over the summer announced plans to start processing the PACT Act claims on Jan. 1, 2023, in an effort to get veterans care and financial support quicker…Individuals who reported facing life-threatening conditions will have their files worked immediately, and some could see disability payouts start within a few days.”
