Episode 142: New Burn Pits Presumptive Conditions VA Disability 2022 Update

On this episode of Veterans Legal Lowdown, the CCK team is discussing the newly established VA presumptions for veterans affected by burn pits. Until recently, most claims relating to burn pit exposure were decided on a case-by-case basis. However, on August 10, 2022, the PACT Act was officially signed into law. The PACT Act added 23 new conditions to the presumptive list for toxic and burn pit exposure and clearly defined eligibility criteria. Be sure to tune in as we review the criteria for this VA presumption and how to apply for burn pit benefits.
