SERVICE – RELATED HEARING ISSUES
If you’re a veteran and you’re dealing with a hearing-related issue, help is available, including through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
You may be able to qualify for disability benefits if you have a hearing problem caused by your service, however, as with other service-connected disabilities you’ll have to prove the connection with your military duty.
To prove your hearing disability is service-related, you’ll need to have a current diagnosis of a hearing condition, evidence of an event during your service that caused it, and a medical opinion connecting the hearing condition to the event during your service.
