The PACT ACT
- The VA wants Veterans and survivors to apply now for their PACT Act benefits.
- Because these conditions have already taken a serious toll on so many Veterans and their families, they are considering all conditions established in the PACT Act to be presumptive on August 10, the date the bill was signed into law.
- They will begin processing those presumptive benefits for Veterans and survivors on the earliest date possible, which is January 1st.
- Any Veteran or survivor can learn more about the PACT Act by visiting VA.gov/PACT or calling 1-800-MY-VA-411.
