Paired organs

Some organs are paired. A new impairment will be automatically accepted if impairment of a matching organ has been accepted as service-related.

You'll have a paired organ impairment automatically accepted as service-related if you:

  • have a paired organ impairment because of Qualifying Service, and
  • permanently lose or suffer the loss of the matching organ.

Paired organs are:

  • adrenal glands
  • breasts
  • ears
  • eyes
  • kidneys
  • lungs
  • ovaries
  • testicles.
