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.

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.

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.

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

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)
