VA Benefits: The VA Benefits program helps people who have served our country and are now veterans. It has a lot of different benefits, but how do you know if you can get them? We’ll take care of you.

Anyone who joined the military after October 16, 1981, will have to have served 24 months of tour in a row or the whole time they were called up.

They are exempt from doing this if their discharge was the result of a hardship, a disability they acquired while serving, or because they did so before September 7, 1980.

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, all National Guard and Reserve members who were not discharged dishonorably will be able to get some benefits. The amount of benefits will depend on how long the person served and how committed they were.

They will be qualified if a federal order called them to active duty and they completed the entire period of service. If they only used that status for training, they are not qualified.

What are the rules for getting VA aid?

If a person is upgraded, they move up in the priority list, which increases their chances of getting benefits. For someone to meet the standards for enhanced eligibility status, they must meet at least one of the ones below.

If you have a handicap related to your service, the VA will pay you money.

  • Something that happened to you on the job caused you to become disabled, so you were fired.
  • You were fired because of a disability that got worse while you were on duty.
  • You served in battle and were paid off or released on or after September 11, 2001.
  • You get money from the VA.
  • You used to be a prisoner of war (POW).
  • You’ve been given a Purple Heart.
  • You’ve been given a Medal of Honor.
  • You get Medicaid benefits or are eligible for them.
  • Between August 2, 1990, and November 11, 1998, you fought in the Gulf War in Southwest Asia.
  • Between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, you served at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days.

Conditions in Vietnam

If you served in the Vietnam War, you are qualified. This includes people who didn’t serve in Vietnam itself but in places like Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and others nearby.

  • From January 9, 1962, to June 30, 1976, any US or Royal Thai military base in Thailand
  • Laos from December 1, 1965, to September 30, 1969
  • From April 16, 1969, to April 30, 1969, Cambodia was at Mimot or Krek in Kampong Cham Province1.
  • Guam or American Samoa, or in the water around Guam or American Samoa, from January 9, 1962, to July 31, 1980.
  • Johnston Atoll or on a ship that stopped at Johnston Atoll between January 1, 1972, and September 30, 1977
