President Biden recently signed the PACT Act into law, perhaps the largest health care and benefit expansion in VA history. As the mother of a US Marine war veteran, I was proud to support this legislation that will treat toxic exposure as a cost of war by addressing the full range of issues impacting toxic-exposed veterans, including access to earned benefits and health care through the VA. 

Any Veteran or survivor can learn more about the PACT Act by visiting or calling 1-800-MY-VA-411. All Veterans and survivors can apply for their benefits now. VA will begin processing PACT Act benefits for Veterans and survivors on the earliest date possible, which is January 1st.
