I haven't applied for the PIA(S) nor the Family Care Giver Allowance, although I qualified for the VIP and PIA, should I?

I fall under the PA/NVC, only receiving 1/5 of 16% = 3% under the PA and the rest is under the NVC (Talk about a headache).

No, you do not have to go through the application process again.

The whole Idea is to allow for greater access for those not receiving the CIA.

Also, it's suppose to allow for a reassessment for those who are receiving the CIA, to see if they qualify for a higher level.

I heard the re assessing is suppose to start this Month, but that's just what I heard, we will see if this gets published.
Also, it would not hurt to contact your CM, or VAC to verify this.

The Career Impact Allowance (CIA) is a taxable, monthly benefit—payable for life. The allowance is provided when your career options have been limited because of a service-related illness or injury.

But yet,

Suspension

A Veteran who is in receipt of the CIA shall provide on request medical records, reports or any other information that is necessary to enable the Minister to assess continued eligibility for the CIA, the CIA supplement or the amount payable (i.e. Grade level).



Miracles do happen apparently and Jesus Christ still walks the earth healing people and low and behold a Minister of no power and a one or two term puppet of a bureaucratic system that can cancel or suspend it just like an insurance company.

ELB, CIA, CIA(S),VIP, Family Caregiver allowance, they all need to be concrete and in place for life, nothing else is acceptable. Suspension? or Payable for life?

Willie- That would be my question also. How and when are they doing reassessments. One would think that would be written, but I don't think it is? Out,,VVZv,,,

I don't see a change except for the name between the Permanent Impairment Allowance and the Career Impact Allowance in terms of qualifying.

I do see a change between the PIAS and the CIAS.

You must be deemed to have diminished earning capacity, to be eligible for the career impact allowance supplement.

Diminished earning capacity:

This term means that a Veteran is unable to earn at least 66.7% of their adjusted pre-release salary.

66.7% of their adjusted pre-release salary?

What are they going to do? Have Veterans apply for work to see if they get hired, then submit the salary to VAC for determining eligibility for the CIAS?

I'd like to know the process they have in place to determine who is capable, and who is not capable of earning 66.7% of their pre released salary.

The more I see stuff like this, the more in confirms the failure of the enactment of this New Veterans Charter.

Talk about a make work project!

They say that the NVC has a lot more benefits than the old pension act, I agree, but I would argue that more does not necessarily mean better.

But hey, it's best we get use to it, that's the way going forward.

One has to be: "severe and permanent impairment for which you have received a disability benefi", but they VAC, will not do anymore TPI?
Seems to me that they will come up with some other assesment to designate someone as being with Severe and Permament Imperment.
More hoops to jump over for us.

Career Impact Allowance (CIA) and the Career Impact Allowance Supplement (CIAS)

Career Impact Allowance and the Career Impact Allowance Supplement


The Career Impact Allowance (CIA) is a taxable, monthly benefit—payable for life. The allowance is provided when your career options have been limited because of a service-related illness or injury.

Do I qualify?

You may qualify if you have:

  • a severe and permanent impairment for which you have received a disability benefit, and

  • a VAC-approved application for rehabilitation services.


How do I apply?

Your VAC case manager can assist you with your application.

If you do not have a case manager, the staff at any VAC office or Integrated Personnel Support Centre (IPSC) can assist you.

You can also fill out the application

OR

If you are registered for My VAC Account, you can apply online now. If you aren’t registered, why wait? Register today.

CIA supplement

Veterans who receive the Career Impact Allowance, and who are deemed to have diminished earning capacity, are also eligible for the career impact allowance supplement.

Severe and permanent impairment

This term is used to identify that the Veteran permanently requires supervision, is severely and permanently limited in mobility or self-care, has conditions such as an amputation or a total and permanent loss of vision or hearing or speech, or a severe and permanent psychiatric condition.

Diminished earning capacity

This term means that a Veteran is unable to earn at least 66.7% of their adjusted pre-release salary

Suitable gainful employment

Suitable gainful employment is a job or career for which you are reasonably qualified by reason of your level of education, training or experience, and that provides at least 66 2/3% of you pre-release salary.
