VA Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Compensation
The VA has authorized new, additional compensation for individuals (including service members, family members, and civilians) injured by exposure to toxic drinking water at Camp Lejeune.
With the passage of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, part of the Honoring our PACT Act, in August 2022, Congress has opened the doors for individuals (and their family members) injured by toxic drinking water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina to receive compensation for their injuries. Individuals are now eligible for disability payments, healthcare, and compensation based on injuries caused by spending more than 30 days serving, living, or working at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987. Service members, family members, and civilians who worked at Camp Lejeune during this time period and have developed serious illness, cancer, suffered a miscarriage or birth defects, are eligible to file a claim.
