Agent Orange Claims The Veterans Benefits Administration devoted 37 percent of its rating staff to working on Agent Orange claims last year. By last month, they’d processed 230,000 claims, including 150,000 “Nehmer” claims. Nehmer v. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs was a lawsuit to force the VA to pay retroactively for the three newest medical conditions added to the Agent Orange presumptive list: hairy cell and other chronic B-cell leukemias, Parkinson’s disease and ischemic heart disease. Nehmer covered claims denied between 1985 and 2010, when a service connection was established between those additional illnesses and Agent Orange. The courts ordered the

VA to be finished adjudicating those claims by Oct. 1, 2011. No, it didn’t make the deadline, but in VA time, a nine-month delay isn’t bad. Nehmer also included some helpful instructions to the VA: Payments are to be made within 21 days of verification of entitlement. Benefits will go to the estate of a deceased veteran. A new claim doesn’t have to be made. If you have an illness, including the newest three added to list, you can still file. Per a VA.gov news release, veterans potentially are eligible if exposed to Agent Orange: • Based on duty or visitation in Vietnam or on its inland waterways between Jan. 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975; • Along the demilitarized zone in Korea between April 1, 1968, and Aug. 31, 1971; • Due to herbicide tests and storage at military bases within and outside of the United States. The VA has set up an Agent Orange Fast Track Claims Processing System website [www.fastrack.va.gov] to walk veterans through the filing process. If you don’t have a computer,

July 5 - 11, 2012 you can talk to Benefits Support at 1-800-827-1000, or go to your Regional Benefits Office. Tell them you want the Fast Track claims forms.
