Hearing loss and other hearing-related problems such as tinnitus, are the most common disabilities reported in military veterans.* However, most veterans do not seek hearing loss treatment when they first notice a hearing problem. Like the civilian population, veterans typically wait at least seven years before seeking help for hearing loss. *January 2011 Government Accountability Office report.
