What evidence do I need?

In an Agent Orange-based claim by a Vietnam veteran for service-connected benefits, VA requires: 

  • A medical diagnosis of a disease which VA recognizes as being associated with Agent Orange.
  • Competent evidence of service in Vietnam, and
  • Competent medical evidence that the disease began within the deadline (if any)
