redfisher - I know of only one afgan wounded comrade who has put in for it. I don't think it got approved yet. Of anyone, this lad deserves it. VVV...

I do know that the OVO is keeping track of all the new benefits for a year to make sure they are effective. If not then a report will be written.

Critical Injury Benefit

Post by Pipes on Mon 30 Nov 2015, 13:13

Going through Bill C59 the CIB looks like only those who suffer physical injuries and are hospitalized will qualify for the CIB. They will get this for the pain and suffering for the duration of their treatment, therapy. What about those with PTSD? They suffer also and go through intensive care sometimes for years. Should the CIB cover both physical and psychological trauma's equally? It seems to me that this benefit should include both or that there should be a CIB for psychological injuries also.

Suffering is suffering....

I agree, but the way the CIB is written, the only way that someone will qualify for psychological conditions, will be if they lose it immediately after the critical incident, and spend enough time in the hospital to qualify. And the way hospitals are nowadays, the only way you will stay in long enough to qualify, you would need to be on life support. I've had four major surgeries in the last 12 years, including emergency spinal surgery, and the longest I've been hospitalized afterwards was 4 days. Also, having worked in a hospital, there are various wards, that are for serious cases, but not called "intensive care". You have Critical Care (CCU), Intermediate Care (IMCU), Cardiac Care, Etc. So even though you may be hospitalized, the fact that you may not be in the ICU the entire time time, you could be denied because of wording.

In all honesty, this should have been a benefit offered by DND, not VAC, since once the retro payments to 2006 are made, the only people that will get it going into the future will be still serving members

When it was written up they knew very well what they were doing. Looks great on paper that Veteran is being offered this and looked after when needed.

Propaganda hush money. That's basically what this is.. Looks really good and caring to the public and it gives Joe public the warm and fuzzy happy feeling that the GoC is looking after wounded Vets. Therefore they don't look into the fine print as surely they (GoC) would not screw the Vets over...

Hey it's great for those that received it, however there are many Vets rated near or over 100% disability and don't qualify.
Seeing VAC recognizes no more then 100% would that not equate to maximum awards/grants etc.
In other words the Veteran would be entitled to all..no questions asked..

Same Idea as fully disabled granted by SISSIP but TPI not by VAC...WTF
Please someone explain that..And two different entities with two different criteria is not an answer!!
Completely disabled is completely disabled..

Yeah Slaket. If deemed disabled and unable to work under CPP and Sisip...then why not TPI?
