Thanks Propat...the question is this...I already get sisip LTD as income for my service. If I get PIA as a taxable income benefit from VAC, is there an offset dollar for dollar from sisip. Or do I stand to gain from this PIA? It seems as both are incomes and taxable, so why would I go from one to another? There must be some benefit to it or why have them both?

Sapper Zodiak.

How in blazes do you figure you need to be an amputee to be musing tpi?
It ain't so. I ain't got no lost limbs, just fracked ones that don't work.

Where's the heck is that one-legged ass kicking contest?

Right back atcha from a one armed paper hanger!!
The VAC website criteria for TPI says amputations etc...I guess every case is decided on its own merits. I never applied before because I thought I wasn't banged up enough. 72% VAC(adjudicated 16 yrs ago) and numerous non military related injuries...perhaps I qualify as well. Looking into it. I have no CM or anything now though. Thanks for the heads up regarding offset of sisip income. Good to know PIA is not considered income for sisip.

Bearing in mind, Pia eligibility prerequisites (ADL's) . I believe the eligibility just got loosened.
Reflecting a longer time for some of us to do said ADL's. To each their own. But I don't want some snoopy betty crocker around me. (proper respect and apology's to the gal vets). It's an independence issue though.... for now.  pinger.

I forgot that the rehabilitation program through SISIP is only available , I believe , within the first two years of being medically released which has passed by several years ago for me. The VAC rehabilitation program is different as it can be done anytime , as far as I know , after medical release.

You know what Sapper Zodiak?

If I was was a one armed paper hanger that's any good, I might go to Jersey or Vegas and be a good armed bandit at the slots. Talking, left or right physical arm. But I sway from the topic at hand, PIA. pinger.

Question about EIA Exceptional Incapacity Allowance ~ am I correct in thinking that you have to be pensioned at 98% or more to qualify? Thanks

Update: I found the answer

sparrow I know you got it but just to clear things up for everyone you will need to be receiving a 100% PA pension . if you are 98% or higher in degree of disability the PA pays you a 100% disability pension .

That is not true actually. I am at 65% under the PA, and paid another 13% under the NVC, but I am getting PIA and PIAS. Mind you, if they factor in the conditions that they have denied, I would be well over 100%.

Thanks for posting Rex. I am at 72% paid at 70% with many injuries denied by VAC. I haven't had a review for about 15-20 years though. Perhaps I will get a favourable outcome on this PIA business. My mobility is quite limited now and others issues I am dealing with have to be factored in, as a whole. Thanks again,
