pingers - not here got my CIA FO letter a few days ago. They used the same excuce about the 25 yr career, which i did 24 of. But what really gets me on this policy, and a cost saver for the gov i assume is that -
I got out in 01,not medical. 3 yrs prior in 98, I did Swiss Air. Like most of us with chronic ptsd, it usually does not hit for a few, and sometimes yrs later. In my case, my career was zipping along until swiss air, then life fell apart, and i had no desire to continue in my career. Although I really did not know at the time what was going on.
Im sure I am not the only one in this sit, so I feel there denial is total bs. Johnny Out.

Early this month VAC wrote me that my PIA/CIA would be re-assessed.
I didn't think it would effect me as my initial PIA approval was somewhat recent.

But today, I got another brown envelope telling me I got moved up to grade 2.
Best I can figure, they applied the new CIA rules to my medical documents which they haven't lost yet.
I have to say, their letter was very clear and detailed, including a Financial Benefits Worksheet.
I really hope you all find a similar positive outcome...

Cheers

I'm staying at level two. But in my opinion, they need to rework the way these are calculated.

if you meet the physical/mental requirements or meet the lost employment criteria, you get that specific level of support. But if you meet both the disability AND the lost employment criteria, you should be bumped up. Right now, someone who is able to earn 66% of their pre-release salary would get the exact same amount of CIA as someone who cannot work at all, as long as the first veteran served just under 19 years, and the second served more than 10.

Just rec'd mind today no change. Still level 3
I will be requesting a review due to the fact that I was released with 20 years of service yet I signed my IPS contract to do a total of 35 years of service. I see it as losing 15 years of service. I should be a minimum level 2 if not a level 1.

Any feedback folks? Do I have a leg to stand on?

This has probably already been answered but is the CIA and CIA supplement for life? Thanks.

My CM told me one of her clients has one done and was awarded higher. CM said they are doing them pretty quickly.

The reason I gave VAC for my appeal is there was no mention of my career being cut short.

Hi Bruce72

Good luck with your appeal.

Could you confirm if the reason for appeal is you signed an IE and was released before you turned 55.

I Signed an IE and could have worked till 55. but was released before i turned 55. was wondering if we are in the same situation.

Cheers.

PS. i am also level 3, with PIA/CIA and (TPI) PIAS/DEC.
