Compensation and Pension
The Compensation and Pension Clinic offers the following types of services:
- Compensation and Evaluation (C&P) examination is conducted to evaluate if a Veteran’s condition(s) is service-connected or if a pre-existing condition was aggravated by military service and determine a Veteran’s eligibility for disability benefits. No medical treatment is provided during this evaluation.
- Agent Orange Registry Program: Any active duty military service Veteran who was assigned and served in the Republic of Vietnam between 1962 and 1975 and has a concern relating to the exposure or handling of the herbicide dioxin is encouraged to join this program. Program includes a comprehensive briefing and evaluation.
- Gulf War Registry Program: Any Veteran who served on active duty in Southwest Asia during the Persian Gulf War between August 2, 1990 and the official termination date (still to be established) is encouraged to join this program. A health examination is offered to detect possible long-term health problems related to Gulf War service.
- Special Examinations: The VA maintains several health registry evaluation programs to track the health of Veterans exposed to environmental hazards during military service.
