The Indianapolis VA Medical Center of Veteran Health Indiana (VHI) will host a Veterans Benefits and Resource Fair on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Marion County Fairgrounds located at 7300 E. Troy Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46239.

Veterans, their families, caregivers, and survivors are also invited to attend one of the three PACT Act briefings being held at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m., on January 31, on the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act of 2022known as the PACT Act. The new law expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances.

“There are so many Veterans and survivors in Indiana and across the nation who are eligible for new and/or expanded VA health care and compensation benefits,” said VHI Director Michael Hershman. “We want to get the word out, so they can receive the care and benefits they deserve.”

Representatives will be on-site to answer questions on the PACT Act, VA eligibility & enrollment (Veterans, bring a copy of your DD214, if available), federal and state VA benefits, filing claims, and more. Toxic Exposure Screening will be available. All are being offered between 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., on January 31.
