VA Continues Fight to Provide Toxic Exposure Benefits to Veterans

Although the Department of Veterans Affairs has secured the money needed to provide toxic exposure benefits to veterans, they still need the manpower to do so. In an attempt to secure more employees, the Veterans Benefits Administration is holding eight hiring fairs across the country to fill the 1,900 jobs available.

According to an article published by Stars and Stripes, “Getting these new hires trained and working quickly is important because veterans can qualify for more money if they apply for toxic exposure benefits before the law’s first anniversary, McDonough said. Those who do so will receive benefits backdated to August 2022, adding to the amount that they will receive.”
