This policy lays out the criteria for each level. You will have to scroll down to get to the criteria for each level. http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/about-us/policy/document/2126

CIA 1,2,3

What/who dictates the 3 pay levels? I have read you can apply for a reassessment to a higher grade, is there a form for that or do you use an original CIA assessment form?
I read also you are supposed to write your request for an upgrade yourself, (there is no space for this on the original CIA Form?) and if you do hand write your reasons why you feel you are entitled to an up grade, who do you mail it to?

CIA wait times

Post by red510 on Mon 23 Apr 2018, 22:03

CIA applications from June 2017 being processed right now. Was told last month that they were working on Aug applications, but now am being told that was a mistake and that they are actually processing applications from June. The backlog is getting worse not better. Very disheartening.

The policy says paid on date of application... they don't say "complete" application. the problem is they can drag their heels its stupid.

Good day,

I requested a review of my grade level for medical reason and just noticed on my vacaccount I just see that I went from level 3 to level 2.

I am confused when I read the policy on date payable it says:

The CIA and an increase in the grade level due to a reassessment, begins to be payable on the later of:
the day on which the application for the allowance was made (see the Application section of this policy); and
the day that is one year prior to the day on which the application for the allowance is approved, i.e. one year prior to the decision date; and
the day after the day of the memberís release from the CAF.

Am I gonna be paid one year retro do I read this correctly ?

CIA is now broken down into two seperate qualifying factors. One is the new way, which takes into account sine served, compared to earning capacity. So with with over 25 years served, they would deny you CIA based on that criteria. But the other qualifying factor, is the level of disability and the effect it has on the ADL's. So You could still be approved for CIA, based on the old criteria.

So if I understand this the right way. Anybody with 25 + years of service can't get CIA right?
