What is the maximum amount payout for a disability???

Post by koreankid on Sun 01 Nov 2015, 11:31

I have found that you are allowed up to $301,275.26 in accordance with the 2014 disability table.
What I don't understand is if you are allowed this amount for each individual disability as a maximum amount per disability.

OR

I have multiple disabilities which combined as percentages will exceed $301,275.26

So my question is are you allowed $301.275.26 for each disability, or is this a maximum amount with all your disabilities combined.

Would appreciate the feedback

Can anyone tell me if the disability award rate table is per disability, or is this the maximum amount you can get with all your disabilities combined.

Thanks for any help

I guess that would make sense as the death benefit is that same maximum amount

Would you know off hand where this information is found in the pension act or the veterans reastablishment

appreciate the help.

I don't trust the vac policies as I have found they change and remove them frequently
Couldn't really find anything in their policies that made sense.

It is in both the Pension Act and the NVC, since both the Disability pension and awards are cumulative.

Pension Act

"Maximum disability assessment

(1.1) Despite anything in this Act, if the extent of disability of a member of the forces, in respect of the aggregate of all of the memberís disability assessments, exceeds 100%, no pension shall be paid in respect of any percentage points exceeding 100%."

New Veterans Charter

"Maximum disability assessment

† †54. (1) For the purposes of section 45, 47 or 48, if a memberís or a veteranís extent of disability, in respect of the aggregate of all of the memberís or veteranís disability assessments and deemed disability assessments, exceeds 100%, no disability award shall be granted in respect of any percentage points exceeding 100%.
† †Marginal note:Assessments under Pension Act

† †(2) Any disability assessments under the Pension Act shall be taken into account for the purpose of determining whether the extent of disability exceeds 100%."

No problem Koreankid. This is the reason CSAT exists. VAC bureaucracy was hard to wrap our heads around as it was, and that was before the NVC was introduced. Heck, there were VAC staff that didn't even know what members were or were not eligible for or not, and actually refused to pass along applications for benefit until they were presented the eligibility requirements from the legislation.
