Have you been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer?

WHY DOES THIS MATTER?

As part of the criteria for establishing a service-connected disability, the VA recognizes lung cancer and mesothelioma as illnesses possibly caused by in-service exposure to asbestos fibers. A valid disability compensation claim for asbestos-related disease must include a diagnosis of one of these conditions. In addition, you must provide through medical records and other documentation, such a doctor’s letter, evidence of exposure to asbestos in service. Our VA-accredited claims representative will help you assemble all of the information you need for your application.
