The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019 goes into effect on January 1, 2020. This law extends benefits for eligible veterans and survivors, and certain dependents.

If you are a Veteran who served in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam, or who had service in the Korean Demilitarized zone (DMZ), you may be entitled to disability compensation for conditions that are related to your exposure to Agent Orange and other herbicides. Eligible survivors may also be entitled to benefits.

Even if you had a herbicide exposure claim denied in the past, you are encouraged to file a new claim.

For more information, review the VA’s Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act Fact Sheet and FAQs.
