Career Impact Allowance (CIA)

Post by Guest on Wed 23 Mar 2016, 07:33

Expanding access to higher grades of the Permanent Impairment Allowance to better support veterans who have had their career options limited by a service-related illness or injury. The potential impact of the permanent and severe impairments on veterans' career advancement opportunities would be considered in determining the appropriate level of financial support. The benefit would also be renamed Career Impact Allowance to better reflect the intent of the program.

It's the 'optics' of the name change that makes me go hmmmm?

I think it's a long-game move. 10 years down the road Joe Canadian will not look at vets as impaired/disabled rather career impaired. Which Joe Canadian will ask why are vets getting an allowance for not working? Totally glossing over the fact the vet is impaired/disabled.

Makes the Libs look 'responsible' for when they reduce it from 3 levels to just 1 level.

I'm thinking any Veteran who's Career was cut short due to Medical reasons will now qualify to submit an application for this particular benefit.

Maybe ?

Navrat ,

The Liberals are focused on the NVC , we will see when the particulars are out but I doubt they will change that , hopefully I'm wrong.

Personally myself , the tax free PA is much better regardless of the difference in how much this CIA is - or is going to be , but that's just me , I would not apply for it , if it was offered.

Well, I remember there being recommendations about taking such factors such as age into account, since a severe disability will affect a person who is in their 20's more, career wise, than it would someone in their 50's. A perfect example of this is ELB. There will likely be more younger Veterans at the lower end of the ELB spectrum, because they didn't have the opportunity to rise through the ranks. So maybe the new CIA will take that into account.

Alright just got back from speaking with my CM, and she's like us, all she know's was what she had read in the papers about
what was in the Budget, and for anything else, she has no clue as to who what how why when anything is gonna be brought in

So, even VAC front line workers are in the dark on these, and or when they will come into effect

Can you imagine the bs that one will have to go through to apply for this 'benefit'?
It will be harder to get it than disability. But on their papers it will look like it is 'available'.
