Do I have to be a Marine or Former Marine to Qualify for the Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Case?

It is anticipated that over 1 million people may have been exposed and affected by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune for over 34-years, from 1953 to 1987. This includes marines that are stationed or in training at Camp Lejeune… but they aren’t the only ones. 

Not a Marine or Former Marine? You May Still be Eligible.

Even if you weren’t a marine or other military personnel, you may still be eligible. If you were a member of a family, a vendor, or civilian employee at Camp Lejeune you may also be eligible. Essentially all women, men, and unborn children, who worked or lived at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days, anytime between 1953 and 1987, you may be entitled to file a claim. This includes, but is not limited to, the following individuals:

  • Military personnel of any branch of service 
  • Spouses of Military personnel 
  • Children of Military personnel
  • Unborn children of military personnel
  • Relatives of Military personnel
  • Civilian employees working at Camp Lejeune
  • Vendors or other civilians on base at Camp Lejeune


The bottom line – whether you were living or working at Camp Lejeune, the fact that you were there between that time potentially qualifies you. You DID NOT have to specifically be a member of the military to qualify.  

We want to be there for all our service members that may have been affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.  If you were at Campa Lejeune for 30 days, anytime between 1953 and 1987, then I encourage you to look into filing a claim.
