New Presumptions of Service Connection Under the PACT Act

New Presumptions of Service Connection Under the PACT Act

On June 14, 2024 VA included three new cancer types to the list of presumptive conditions under the PACT Act

  • Male Breast Cancer
  • Urethral Cancer
  • Cancer of the Paraurethral Glands

“This policy establishes presumptions of service connection for eligible Gulf War and post-9/11 Veterans who deployed to Afghanistan, Somalia, Djibouti, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, Uzbekistan, and the entire Southwest Asia theater of operations, which includes Iraq. Presumptive service connection means VA automatically assumes service connection for the disease and provides benefits to eligible Veterans who have submitted claims with evidence of a diagnosis.”
