Attention Veterans in Congressional District 17 !
August 9th is the filing deadline for veterans to be eligible for PACT ACT benefits backdated to August 19, 2022. There is no deadline to apply for future benefits but the difference, for an eligible veteran or survivor, could potentially amount to a $15,000-20,000 benefit loss.
