Veterans can file for a current disability that is related to their time in service.
There are generally four types:
- Direct service connection: the disability is directly related to the veteran's service.
- Presumptive service connection: the veteran is "presumed" to have been exposed to some event or condition that is related to their current disability.
- Secondary service connection: A veteran has a disability that is in some way related to or caused by a current service-connected disability.
- Aggravation: a veteran has a condition that existed prior to service, but this condition was aggravated and became worse due to service.
