Qualifying For Military Pension Benefits
Qualification to collect a pension benefit requires an honorable discharge and a service-related injury spanning a qualifying wartime conflict:
- World War II service period of December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946
- Korean War, including service between June 27, 1950 to January 31, 1955
- Vietnam War from February 28, 1961, to May 7, 1975
- Persian Gulf Wars beginning on August 2, 1990
It is important for recently discharged and retired veterans to remember that the VA considers the first Persian Gulf War to be an open wartime conflict. This means that qualifying veterans from the current Iraq and Afghanistan wars are eligible to receive pension benefits now. An experienced Brighton elder lawyer at our firm is ready to help you collect your rightful veteran’s benefits.
