Veterans who apply for “PACT Act” benefits by Monday, August 14 may be eligible to receive benefits backdated to 2022
Georgia veterans can find more information about the “PACT Act” and apply for benefits at VA.Gov/PACT
Atlanta, Ga. –– U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is urging Georgia veterans to apply for expanded health care benefits through the PACT Act by Monday, August 14.
While there is no deadline for veterans to sign-up for PACT Act benefits through the VA, veterans who file aclaim, or submit their intent to file a claim, by Monday, August 14, may be eligible to receive benefits backdated to August 2022 — meaning veterans may receive reimbursements for health care costs incurred dating back to August 2022
The original August 9 deadline to apply was extended until this Monday. Georgia veterans can find more information about the PACT Act and apply for benefits at VA.Gov/PACT.
Sen. Ossoff championed this bipartisan legislation to expand VA health care benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic substances, and the bipartisan PACT Act was signed into law last August.
Last week, Sen. Ossoff held a live telephone town hall alongside Major General Thomas Grabowski, Retired Commander of the Georgia Air National Guard, to brief veterans across Georgia about expanded health benefits through the bipartisan PACT Act.
Veterans across Georgia who have questions or need assistance with their veterans’ benefits can contact Sen. Ossoff’s office at ossoff.senate.gov.
