The PACT Act

TOXIC EXPOSURE: Expansion of health care and benefits for exposed veterans

The Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022 has officially been signed into law — a long-awaited victory for veterans. Wounded Warrior Project® strongly advocated for this bill, which finally addresses one of the most urgent issues for post-9/11 veterans — health problems related to exposure to burn pits and other toxic substances. This comprehensive legislation ensures that exposed veterans are able to access the health care and disability benefits they have earned from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

For more information on how this could impact you, read our guides featured on this page, or visit the VA’s information page: The PACT Act and Your VA Benefits.
