If a Veteran served between 0 and 20 years, that means he/she had more than 5 years left to serve. The Veteran’s CIA (PIA) grade could increase, depending on the level of earning capacity.

The general public are being misinformed.

I had many years left to serve, so this is utter BS.
Who decides on this stuff, Nostradamus.

This whole name change to CIA/DEC has nothing to do with 'career'. As you said, only looks good for Herr that he makes it 'more available' to veterans. BS.
I better end now (it gets my blood boiling)

CIA No Change Letter Greater 20 years - Budget 2016 (VAC1513)

“Given you served 20 years or more, your military career was not impacted and therefore does not affect your current grade level”.


Medically released before the age of 40 (For last 5 years in promotion sat on shelf because of permanent category.....) been TD/TPI since released.

Sorry to hear that 6608. You should appeal the decision. Every CIA recipient who is denied an upgrade should appeal. That's what I am doing, my letter didn't mention my career was cut short by 14 years.

Something fishy is going on. How can there be a huge backlog on claims, but theses CIA issues seem to have been adjudicated over night!

VAC! They're reading everything we post. I'm convinced of it.

Bruce72, The criteria they are using for the CIA level upgrade is pretty clear on two points those with 20 years in regardless of being DEC (TPI) are not eligible and those who are not DEC (TPI) regardless of years served are not eligible so this only leaves a very select few CIA veterans eligible for the level upgrade.

I'm not surprised 6608, but I really thought VAC and the federal government would be more generous with the criteria.

As far as I'm concerned anyone receiving CIA has had their ability to earn money diminished. But, hey what do I know.

One thing I do know is that I'm tired of the merry-go-round.

I have a question regarding the CIA/CIAS. I understand once you are approved at whatever level 1,2,3 , after a 2 year timeframe you will have to be reevaluated? I think I remember Bigrex or Bruce72 explain this but cant find Their posts? My questions is what does VAC want to know after 2 years? Another bunch of paperwork to fill out? Will I have to let my Doc know what to expect? Do they call him/her? Will this be the final batch of paperwork for me to fill out then I can relax? I'm thinking I'm going to get this request soon and just want to get as much info for my piece of mind.
Thanks in advance.
Mike.

DEC is reviewed after 2 years. To find out if you still have a diminished earning capacity.

So I served 16 years before being medically released, if my claim is approved, does VAC assume I would have stayed in the military 20,25,30,35 years? where do they hypothetically draw the line in terms of years of service they feel I would have lost?

I still think that it should be based on your age when you become TPI/DEC, not how many years you served. Because the way it is written, younger Veterans can get screwed over. Veteran A joins the CF at age 30, and serves 5 years before being medically released for a relatively mild disability, like a bad knee. That Veteran then goes onto a second career, but 20 years later, becomes TPI. So that Veteran would automatically get grade 1 CIA at age 55, based on losing more than 15 years of CF service, in spite of being able to work their entire adult life. Where as Veteran B joins the CF at age 20, and serves 11 years before being released with a severe disability, that prevents them from ever working again. but even though he is only 31, and unable to ever work again, he/she will only qualify for CIA grade 2. After all, CIA isn't about just compensating for losing your military career, it's about lost earnings capacity, which should include military and post military careers.

It should be based on the day you become Permament Category while serving! and not TPI/DEC designation.
