Multiple Sclerosis Veterans Benefits

 

The VA provides health care services to Veterans with MS from the time of diagnosis throughout their life, whether or not they have a service-connected or non-service connected status.   If an individual had symptoms of MS in the military, or within seven years after honorable discharge, he or she may be eligible for service-connected disability.  If this is the case, the Veteran should complete the Veterans Application for Compensation and/or Pension available online (http://www.va.gov) or at his or her local medical center.  Veterans Service Organizations (VSO), such as the Paralyzed Veterans of AmericaDisabled American VeteransVeterans of Foreign Wars, and United Spinal Association are good support resources.
