i have EIA but have been fighting for CIA/CIAS...I know the physical differences (payment) but no one thru my appeals have answered my question. In the interest of the Veteran that already has EIA what is the difference or best choice between the EIA and CIA/CIAS? Looking long term..

No VAC boards are answering me

Anyone

not a problem buds just a point CIA may be changing and applications are backed up at this time . also CIA and its sup if ya can get it together would be better or about the same depending on you tax bracket . without being in your shoes its impossible to say witch would be better in your case the CIA or EIA .good luck choosing and with your application . if you require anything further even if its just for someone to bounce an idea off just ask .

well buds if you have a total 100% disability where part of it is paid as a monthly PA pension AND you are not collecting CIA you should be applying for something in my opinion . now what to apply for is up to you and a big decision as you can only receive one either CIA or EIA . but buds id be applying for something .

well you would need to be receiving a 100% PA pension or a total of 100% between PA pension and NVC award total. you must NOT be in receipt of CIA .

do you meet this criteria ?

Exceptional Incapacity Allowance

Post by Newf on Mon 15 Jan 2018, 10:04

Folks, a lady called me from VAC this morning to advise she is the new case worker assigned to my file. She introduced herself and advise me that she had reviewed my file to become familuar with my issues/VAC benefits.

In speaking with her, she stated that I could now apply for the Exceptional Incapacity Allowance and additional housekeeping benefits. Being the stubborn person that I am, I told her I do not need any help right now with housekeeping because my wife/kids do most of the housework and I can still do many chores around the house. I explained to her I am still working full time but in a workplace accommedation position. She suggested I think about the application for EIA and advise her if I would like to meet with her to make the application.

Does anyone know what is involved with this EIA application? What sort of questions and evaluation will be done by her for the EIA? I really don't think I qualify as I am still working full time and I am suspicious of this process. Any suggestions?

Thanks
Newf
