  • PACT ACT Legislation
    Updated On: Jan 26, 2023

    Sisters and Brothers,

    Last year, the Union Veterans Council, along with our affiliates, played a critical role in the passage of the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act. This legislation ensures any veteran who was exposed to burn pits, toxins, and airborne hazards while deployed will be provided access to VA health care and benefits.

    If you're a veteran or have a veteran in your family who was exposed, click HERE to learn more about what benefits you and/or your loved ones are entitled to from the VA.

    The PACT Act will bring these changes:

    • Expands and extends eligibility for VA health care for Veterans with toxic exposures and Veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf War, and post-9/11 eras
    • Adds 20+ more presumptive conditions for burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic exposures
    • Adds more presumptive-exposure locations for Agent Orange and radiation
    • Requires VA to provide a toxic exposure screening to every Veteran enrolled in VA health care
    • Helps us improve research, staff education, and treatment related to toxic exposures

    If you’re a veteran or survivor, you can file claims now to apply for PACT Act-related benefits.

    We remain dedicated to passing legislation like the PACT to ensure that veterans receive all the benefits we earned.
