The CF income support program seems to be very restrictive. The criteria is rather obscure, stating that you have to enrolled in a career transition service. What the heck is that? isn't that what the voc rehab is? I know you can work while on it, but only make a limited amount, but the limits are unknown. Also, not only does it get reduced by amounts you get from other sources, like your CF pension, (not sure of PA pension anymore) it gets reduced by a percentage of the money your spouse earns.

If you don't think that you'll be able find gainful employment due to your disability, your better off getting PIA. I posted links for the PIA application in the thread "lots of onions for dva cm's". so you can print it off and send them in, or you could always call and hope you get some help from DVA. You can receive PIA while still working, and does not get reduced by other sources of income, and it is for life.
