PIA AND PIA SUPPLEMENT

Post by rigger/fitter on Thu 08 Jan 2015, 12:39

HI  again folks
 Well i finally decided to apply for the pia review and the pia supplement after watching the then mouth piece o'toole(now vac minister) say on tv that the govt has made it more of a process then a application because they are suppose to have all the paperwork necessary to approve.I just had the meeting with the CM and she wants to send it up the chain to decide,i now get pia grade 3 like most who have applied.
 Now the waiting game begins.

"Please mr vac minister can i please have some more gruel(thats how i feel when i have to beg for a benefit from them)

Good folks of this form,i need your input about the voc/rehab program which i have to apply for in order to get TPI,so i can apply for the pia supplement.
My % level is 121,i will never hold a job again(ptsd/pain/meds)you get the picture.They told me i would have to go through a 2 day assessment? and if i get the tpi,its not a permanent designation and can be removed.My worry is this gives the c/m too much control over my file,if the rules change or get interpreted wrongly by them i will end up on the losing side if they remove the tpi again and cancel the pia supplement.
Is there anyone that gets the supplement have any words of wisdom?

thanks

not sure what to say buds I didn't have to do a 2 day assessment not even sure what that would be . I know guys got flagged after a tour for PTSD and had to do one but that was within the military.

I did have to apply for the rehab program but was only granted the rehab part as the voc rehab part of the rehab program would have been useless to me.

I really didn't know TPI (totally and PERMANENTLY impaired ) was not permanent.

I have the supplement and never had a problem that's all I can tell you wish I had more for ya.

hope this helps a little.

Rigger, What you are talking about is a functionally assessment by an OT. They will look at you hand eye coordination, strength, lifting pushing and pushing weight limitations, as well as mobility. They will report to VAC if there are any occupations that you can still work in, and any other kinds of limitations. When I did mine, they said that I could only work for 2 hours/week, so they gave me the EELB. As far as it not being permanent, nothing is with VAC. You will be required to have medical questionnaires completed every few years, and as long as those accurately record your disabilities, the benefit will not be taken away.

Tx for the O/T details Rex, It's those physical tests and reports I never had, that denied my pia.

Rigger, I may be on the flipside of your coin. I am tpi, eelb, and old pa plus nvc but no pia.
Never heard of tpi being revoked and having to go back to voc. rehab. to get it back.

Only thing I can recall is if someone had oldtime pa disability pension at say 100 %, were suddenly  miraculously cured and reported it. VAC could lower the 100% as they deem TOD appropriate but only if they were less than 55 years old (stabilized). 
 
I really wish I could get miraculously cured... don't we all?  pinger.

The process for me started with my case manager contacting me telling me he sent me an application in the mail and requesting to contact him.

There is no minimum percentage, and they are supposed to take all medical conditions into consideration, even those that are not service related.

It is based on inability to work by being deemed totally and permanently incapacitated.

Permanent Impairment Allowance
Share this page
Severe and permanent impairment

This term is used to identify that the Veteran requires supervision or assistance with daily living and has conditions such as an amputation, loss of vision or hearing or speech, or psychiatric condition.

Total and permanent incapacity

This term is used to indicate that the Veteran’s health issue(s) and impairment(s) are not expected to improve to the point where they will regain the ability to pursue suitable gainful employment.

The Permanent Impairment Allowance (PIA) is a taxable, monthly benefit—payable for life. The allowance is provided when your career options have been limited because of a service-related illness or injury.

Do I qualify?
You may qualify if you have:

a severe and permanent impairment for which you have received a disability benefit, and
a VAC-approved application for rehabilitation services.
How do I apply?
Your VAC case manager can assist you with your application.

If you do not have a case manager, the staff at any VAC office or Integrated Personnel Support Centre (IPSC) can assist you.

You can also fill out the application and mail it to us.

PIA supplement
If VAC has designated you as totally and permanently incapacitated, you may also qualify for the Permanent Impairment Allowance supplement.

The Permanent Impairment Allowance supplement is a taxable monthly benefit payable if you are in receipt of the Permanent Impairment Allowance and, due to the level of your disability, you are not capable of suitable gainful employment.

Suitable gainful employment
Suitable gainful employment is a job or career for which you are reasonably qualified by reason of your level of education, training or experience, and that provides at least 66 2/3% of you pre-release salary.
