VA disability compensation

A health registry evaluation is not a claim for VA benefits and may not confirm exposure to environmental hazards during military service. Veterans who want to be considered for disability compensation for exposure-related health problems must file a claim. More information is available at www.benefits.va.gov

To schedule a registry evaluation, contact an Environmental Health Coordinator at any VA medical facility. A list of Coordinators is available online at www.publichealth.va.gov

For the Toxic Embedded Fragments registry, contact an OEF/OIF/OND Clinical Coordinator at your nearest VA medical facility to schedule a registry evaluation.
