Veterans Benefits and Services

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/she may be eligible for service-connected disability. If this is the case, the Veteran should complete the Veterans Application for VA Compensation and/or VA Pension available online or at his/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.
