Honestly, I do not see how they can merge all of these benefits into a single pension, even if they want to, since everyone is different. You could take a hundred veterans at random, and I bet no two would be getting the exact same amount. There are just too many variables, like the level of disability for the PA pension, marital status, number of children, rank, and even trade, at the time of release. They could be getting one of 5 different levels of attendance Allowance, Clothing Allowance, level of PIA, and whether or not they get the PIA supp as well. Then add on the complexity of merging taxable, and non taxable benfits, and it just becomes impossible.

From the conversations with the Ministers staff the plan is to have the veteran fill out one application.

From that one application it is then CC'd (best way I can describe it) to all the other benefits available to the veteran. That way the veteran is not tied up with endless applications and red tape.

They have another 60 days to come up with a "model" to do a beta test on it.

There is going to be a flurry of administrative changes, legislation changes until the House stands for the election.

That said any bills will be in the Senate so they don't die on the floor at election time. VAC has been given their administrative orders and are now working on the changes from now until the end of the election and beyond that.

The real loud noise coming from PEI right now is the filing cabinet doors that have never been opened are now opening. Keyboards are working overtime. A huge collective groan of having to change habits is also in the sounds coming from PEI.

If a change of mind is hapening, well it will be for the best. To bad (the system) had to be pussed so hard to get things moving. The elections may be one cause of this another could be the staguering cases of law suits popping up. Canada's reputation is paying dealy for it. On the other M. Harper wants our Country to be more offencise in international maters. I agree wiht that but you need to be able to handle the after math!!!!! The one question sheet sounds good as long as the questions are in simple language and understandable.

Another interesting time for veterans ......now when they fixed all this ...it will be an echo chamber in here! --NOT!!--  ..............Somehow I feel the government will fall short ........ how could we trust them this time!

I really feel the motivation are law suits,elections and the future need of lots more soldiers due to the conflicts in Russia,Syria & with ISIS.
We are going back to combat very soon ....we will have little or no choice!

Recruiting, if they are seen as uncaring and not taking care of the veterans, will suffer!

Dannypaj. I was wonder if you could hElp me I got some questions about PIA about how you go about filing for it my CM told me she would file it but not until I finish my physio, it's a bitch cause I haven't done it in twenty years. The exercise is helping my muscles but killing my knees and ankles. I was told march of dimes makes the decision

If your disability amount with Veterans Affairs is more than 90 or 95% , not sure which it is , you can apply for exceptional incapacity allowance.

you have to getting paid at 100% under the Pension Act (98% or greater), to apply for EIA. PIA on the other hand is not as restrictive. Obviously your CM feels that your medical condition with greatly improve with physio. but in my experience, physio often hurts more than helps chronic condition.

Physio only works if it is done every day for the rest of your life who the hell is going to go though that. Last time i went to physio veterans stuck me with a 385 dollar physio bill i had to pay for myself.

I was going twice a week for a few months, and every time, I would walk out worse off than I went in, and took a few days to recover, just in time for my next appointment. Eventually my therapist said that there was no improvements to my RoM or pain level, so there was no sense continuing. Basically, months of paid torture, for zero benefit.

Same thing here. My last dozen physio appts, they gave up on me. Said I could keep coming for appts, they could keep billing dva but there was no improvement they could foresee. At least they were honest though.
Gotta try/find that 140 degree infra-red zapper. pinger.

Pinger go to Home Depot, Rona and I think Loews has infrared sauna's. I have one and the penetrating heat really helps my back and knees.

Ask your doctor if infrared heat treatment will help your condition. If you get a yes then ask for a prescription and then claim the cost of the sauna on your taxes under medical.

Thank you Teen. I did ask my pain clinic and physio shop a while back, they never heard of it. Don't know much about it but I will find out more. My doctor I gotta ask too. 
It's a better route than all the pills and cheap whiskey... 

A list of exercises propat? Had them years ago also. But jeez, I miss jogging and running dam it.
We must all play with the cards dealt to us though.  And that can be a sob.  pinger.

Sorry,this thread is supposed to be about elections and legislations, not physio LOL
