I called my friend and the name change from PIA to CIA and the reason the OVO suggested that PIA be named differently was because it was confusing when dealing with the many alphabet benefits of EIA, EIAS, PIA, PIAS, ELB, EELB etc.

So to help distinguish the difference for VAC adjudicators, veterans, CM's etc the Libs agreed and changed the name from PIA to CIA. And yes the CIAS is still in play.

Really? So changing the name of something that has been around for a decade, by one letter, is supposed to make things magically less complicated? EIA, EIAS, PIA, PIAS, ELB, EELB etc., is no different than EIA, EIAS, CIA, CIAS, ELB, EELB etc.

The only reason I could really see for this name change would be for optics for Joe public, so that they do not think that Veterans were double dipping by getting a life long pension based on level of disability, AND a separate life long benefit based on level of impairment.

That could be one of the reasons behind the name change - or the sole reason behind the name change but the fact still remains that the promise was to " Expand access to the Permanent Impairment Allowance to better support veterans who have had their career options limited by a service-related illness or injury."
Promise number 3 from the Mandate Letter.

From what I'm reading from the Budget , apart from changing the name , " career advancement opportunities would be considered in determining the appropriate level of financial support."

So it looks like the expansion that they are adding is going to be taking this career advancement opportunities into consideration in determining the level of financial support.

The only advantage I could see is if someone who is receiving the old PIA/PIAS at a certain level and now with this new CIA could have their level increased from the new expansion.

Also for those who are now applying for the CIA their initial grade level could be higher with this expansion compared to the old PIA/PIAS.

Congrats Sapper on your approval !

Were going to have to get use to calling it the CIA because that's what it is now.

Navrat the only thing I could find was that if your on the CIA you cannot collect the EIA so I would Imagine the same goes for those on the EIA wanting the CIA.

Now with respect to your question can I give up the EIA for the CIA ?

I'm just guessing here but I suppose if you were to give up your EIA , they are not just going to transfer you to the CIA.
I would think you would have to apply for the CIA taking into consideration the Rehab application.

Don't quote me on this , it's just what I think as I could not find a reference to it.
