Post by Guest on Mon 09 May 2016, 05:47

The Retirement Income Security Benefit (RISB) is a monthly taxable benefit.

This benefit tops up a Veteranís total annual income to at least 70% of what he or she received in financial benefits from VAC before age 65.

Survivors may also be eligible for this benefit.

Increase to the survivorís pension yet to be implemented

Increase to the survivorís pension yet to be implemented



I'm posting this as a reminder of the Liberals promise from the MVA's mandate letter to increase the veteran survivorís pension amount from 50 percent to 70 percent.

As of today, Sept 08, 2017 no word on this promise.

We'll keep an eye on this one.
