Question for forum members

1. If An injured member is deemed to be DEC on or  after April 1st 2018, will the Career Impact Allowance (supplement) still be available up until 1st April 2019 ?

Frustrating is correct, I was awarded EIA in 2016...tried to fight it and wonder why i was awarded EIA when i am a NVC veteran..CIA and CIAS replaced it...been denied because i was awarded EIA and now no longer eligible for CIA..

was thinking of another appeal to have it with drawn and request for CIA but i can imagine the issues i will have..with all the new up coming changes who knows what the rainbow will lead to... Evil or Very Mad

That is a old charter benefit...crazy

Reconsideration Letter Question
Post by Dannypaj on Sat 11 Apr 2015, 13:07  "IS WHEN I STARTED MY RECONSIDERATION "APPEAL" AND IT'S CONCLUDING SOON ! ! !" favourably? TBA  

First post below on this topic 3 years ago.
VRAB will be receiving my file in the near future (five months time frame) for reconsideration.  I submitted new evidence in order to have my case looked at again.
P.s
Thank you to all of the forum members helping me even if it is virtual contact.
Keep plugging away veterans, we are virtual soldiers (Keyboard Commandos, loving it)  that  which our voices resonates all across Canada.

I know it's very frustrating, but there is a very clear path for getting all the NVC benefits.  PA pension/DA  -  Rehab program  -  ELB and CIA  -  DEC  -  and finally, EELB and CIAS.  Some of the steps can be taken at the same time, but if you try to skip a step, everything down the road will get denied. No ifs, ands or buts.

Bigrex that is exactly right. One must follow a clear path. I didnt! The good news is I finally got it.


Just a Check in and a follow up (there maybe hope).
It has been a rollercoaster of a ride, but it may be coming to a stop soon.
A few weeks past, I was hand delivered my DEC papers by my CMO.
My DEC papers will be filled out and a board will convene and deliver an outcome.

This whole program is in need of an overhaul.
Being through it since 1998 and onwards, it shouldn't be so complicated!

Nothing worse then waiting a half a year for a reply and the reply being NO.

And when researching the reason why, well you stumble upon forums like this and find other disenfranchised soldiers.

You can not get CIA s without the DEC. I was decline too. I had to get that before I reapplied/appealed again. So I did. DEC requires over 24 months "minimum" on rehab. I was on LTD for over ten years with Sisip and I had to submit new medicals etc. The process was totally frustrating it took an additional eight months. It should have been automatic. It wasn't backdated either. I understand the battle to well Dannypaj.

No I have not been deemed DEC. (Although I was medically released with service related conditions).

Airlog for instance is over 100% but  did not receive the CIA....sorry Airlog to hear! But keep on them, you are your best advocate!....and for sure, the guys and girls on the forums are more then eager to help.
I think we are all tired of seeing people being bullied by a system designed to provide luxuries for the rich while shelling out leftovers to us; the real people of Canada.
