"For spouses and family members, the government will increase the veteran survivor’s pension amount from 50 percent to 70 percent and eliminate the “marriage after 60” clawback clause, so surviving spouses of veterans receive appropriate pension and health benefits." ***When they say this, are they talking about CFSA? or a VAC pension?

I'm guessing here that the increase from 50% to 70% has to do with VAC benefits....this is the way it use to be with VAC benefits to the surviving spouse....100% for the first year an 50% for every year thereafter.

I'm guessing that the marriage after 60 clause has to do with the CF pension.

Others may be a bit more knowledgeable....but it's difficult to know where these guy's are coming from as there's no details on the promises they promised.

well, I wouldn't expect any major moves before parliament resumes next week. As far as the 50% survivor benefit, AFIK, that only really applies to those assessed at below 47%. Anyone getting a pension of over 48%, the spouse gets equivalent to the 75% pension of a single Veteran. So a surviving spouse of a Veteran paid at 50% or 55% will actually make more after the death than the Veteran did while alive. I was thinking it might apply to the survivor benefits under ELB, but I'm not sure if there are actual survivor benefits for those who were getting ELB, and not just survivors who are eligible for ELB because the Veteran had passed away due to their service. The literature is surprisingly vague of that subject.

The secret is in the RISB! That's the ticket for veterans and survivors happiness!

I'm hoping that the RISB will be a distant memory by the time I reach 65, as I continue to collect my 90% ELB for life.

I get VAC but at 50%. I also get Sisip and cpp(d). But i don't qualify for anything else from VAC including the ELB and all those other things others get. So tho I could never work again, I don't have a mental impairment tho I have MCI and I can feed and clothe myself - . I am also mobile...not real far or fast but mobile. So I am thinking that I would not qualify for RISB. I think many are likely in that category.

Well Nemo, maybe part of the improvements to PIA will be the extension of benefits to everyone who is deemed TPI, whether or not they meet the existing criteria or not. since that was one of the deficiencies identified by the OVO report. If you are getting SISIP and CPP(D), you should have no issue getting declared TPI as well.
