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.

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.

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'.

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

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.

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.
