VA Disability Claim Conditions Expanded

Veterans Administration - 11/8/2021

The Veterans Administration is now processing disability claims for those suffering chronic asthma, rhinitis, and sinusitis (to include rhinosinusitis). 
 
Veterans who served in Southwest Asia after August 2, 1990, or Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Syria, or Djibouti after September 19, 2001, may now be eligible for disability compensation. Those considering filing are encouraged to seek information from the VA or contact local area claim service officers.
