Yeah, they were, in my opinion, duplicitious in how they went about this, touting the $360,000 for Veterans. That only applies to people who got their award in 2017. Everyone else is based on an inflation increase for the year they received their award. I got mine in 2013, so mine is now based on the new max for 2013.

Thanks, thats where my confusion lies. I was reading posts for months and everyone was saying that we were to be processed in accordance with the $360,000 from our payouts.
. We're just getting topped up with our own money, since I discovered disability awards are processed and electronically signed in the CSDN electronic system and VAC then uses the old CDN software to generate a fake disability award that is hand signed awarding the applicant half of what the real electronically signed decision letter in the CSDN system has awarded the applicant.

Howdie Howdie..

So I went back to another post thats like 60 pages and found the part I was looking for and re-post it here.
The most confusing part people are getting confused with is this $360,000 number where some are calculating it from or based of it.
Unfortunately thats not how they did the calculations. To find your amount you need to subtract what you received in what year, as per the NEW MAX
for that year, After Adjustment was made.
If you have 2 or 3 different one's then calculate each year individually, then add the differences up.
So He's that adjustment listing, and again they started from $360,000 and worked Backwards, or downwards they call it.
Please do not calculate your difference from the New MAX amount of $360,000.

The table below illustrates the maximum Disability Award of $360,000 that is coming into force April 1, 2017, adjusted downward by Consumer Price Index for each year between 2017 and 2006 for the purposes of calculating the additional payment.
Year Annual Consumer Price Index New Maximum Disability Award
amount adjusted downward
2017 1.5% $360,000.00
2016 1.3% $354,679.80
2015 1.8% $350,128.13
2014 1.0% $343,937.26
2013 1.8% $340,531.94
2012 2.9% $334,510.75
2011 1.7% $325,083.33
2010 0.4% $319,649.29
2009 2.6% $318,375.79
2008 2.1% $310,307.79
2007 2.1% $303,925.36
2006 0.0% $297,674.20

I'd like to remind everyone to choose "paperless" communication on My VAC Account in order to receive and electronic letter about your top up amount.

If you do not do this you will likely have to wait for a letter in the mail.

That's funny because my retro letter wasn't in at 8am eastern yesterday, but 810am it was.
The "other" payment was the same thing.... not there at 8am, but there at 810.
