Changed Regulations For Cardiac/Vascular Disorders

Recently, the VA changed the regulations regarding veterans disability benefits for Vietnam veterans suffering from cardiac/vascular disorders. One of the key requirements for veterans' compensation is a nexus, or a demonstrable connection, between the injury or disability and some kind of specific accident or incident while in service that caused the injury.

For Vietnam veterans, the VA now presumes a nexus between Agent Orange exposure and ischemic heart disorder. In the past, these soldiers had to prove that Agent Orange actually caused the heart disease, a difficult task. Now, if you are a veteran who served in Vietnam, the VA will presume your heart disease was caused by exposure to Agent Orange. This makes it much easier to obtain the benefits you deserve and need.
