“I’m so glad we sought the help of CCK on my husband’s VA claim. We had been going back and forth with the VA for 5 years on his claim without seeing any progress. Then we found CCK and the case was resolved in about a year! Once we got in touch with CCK, everything started moving. CCK handled all of the communication with the VA and always kept us in the loop. The team working on my husband’s case was so polite and kind, and they were always willing to answer any questions we had. Thank you CCK for successfully handling our VA disability case!”
How do I get disability for Agent Orange exposure?
To get VA disability for Agent Orange exposure, we must prove the following:
- Exposure to the herbicide Agent Orange.
- Exposure due to military service.
- Diagnosis of a medical condition associated with Agent Orange.
We gather the evidence you need to prove you meet these criteria.
How do I prove Agent Orange caused my medical condition?
If you served in Vietnam or the Korean DMZ during the Vietnam War era, the VA presumes exposure. If you served elsewhere during this time period, such as in Thailand, you may still be eligible for service connection. The military used Agent Orange in other locations. We will examine your military service and determine if you might qualify.
What health conditions does the VA associate with Agent Orange?
The list of conditions associated with Agent Orange exposure includes:
- Diabetes Mellitus, type II

- Prostate Cancer
- Lung and Respiratory Cancer
- Soft Tissue Sarcoma
- Multiple Myeloma
