Veterans Hearing Loss & Tinnitus: VA Benefits Guide

Understanding tinnitus, hearing loss, and the VA disability benefits available to veterans is essential to maintaining a normal quality of life.

Below, we provide a brief look at navigating VA disability ratings, accessing treatment options, and finding support for your hearing needs.

Tinnitus: The Ringing in Your Ears

Tinnitus is a common condition among veterans.  Often linked to noise-induced hearing loss or exposure to loud blasts.  Tinnitus can refer to the perception of the following:

  • “Ringing” or “buzzing” in the ear
  • Sounds in the ears or head produced without an external source.
  • Can occur in 1 or both ears.

The VA recognizes tinnitus as a service-connected disability, making veterans eligible for disability benefits.
