Benefit Expiration Dates
Did you know that many of your VA benefits have an expiration date? If not you are not alone, most veterans aren't aware of their benefits, let alone that many of them can expire. Although these deadlines are generally set in stone, the VA has provisions to wave them if you have a legitimate reason for not applying before the given deadlines. These may include health and disability issues. However the VA will not waive a time limit for not knowing the deadline for your benefits. Veterans' Benefits Expiration Dates (pdf)
