Service-related presumptions

This is when a condition or death is automatically service-related because it is clearly related to a qualifying operation.

You'll need to have Qualifying Operational Service and the:

  • condition—or death—happened during Qualifying Operational Service
  • condition was aggravated during Qualifying Operational Service—but was recorded before in service medical records
  • condition was aggravated during Qualifying Operational Service—but the veteran had it before without realising.

All of these would need to be clearly shown in your service medical records.
