Grade Amount

The CIA supplement is $1,120.71.


So how does the CIA Supplement work,

is this added to the CIA Example:

If approved CIA and CIAS due to DEC.

would it be 1828.67+1120.71 = 2948.67/Month

and will this remove from my EELB.


would it be 1828.67+1120.71 = 2948.67/Month

yes

and will this remove from my EELB.

No

Hope this helps

Quick question..

Will the new IRB be the same amount or close to the CIA/CIAS and DEC?

Airlog if you meet the CIA criteria medically for level 1, 2 or 3 it doesn't matter the amount of time you have in.

Hi Bigrex,
My CM is requesting DEC on my behalf. This will be good for EELB. Seeing how I have a 31 year pension I doubt that I would qualify for CIA. Right?

If you are deemed DEC, and served less than 10 years, before being medically released, then yes, you should get grade 1. If you are not deemed DEC, then the grade is solely dependant on the severity of your PTSD.

See, it's different for everyone, depending on the medical conditions that are creating the difficulty. For PTSD, they very well may just go with the recommendation from your Psychiatrist, or they may request further evaluation, It's impossible to know, until you actually apply.

I have only been on ELB now since May 2018.

My CM believe i should wait before applying for DEC.

Now my Doctor wants to stop me complete from work for DEC. What are the step with DEC do they send someone at are house.
or they just go with the medical evidence

If you truly cannot work, and you can get supporting evidence from your mental health team, then you should apply for DEC ASAP. That way, your CIA will automatically be approved at grade1, and you can also apply for CIAS, before it's abolished next April.

I just applied for CIA about a week ago, it's at Stage 3 all ready.
I believe this is were it stales out. But my question is, im not on DEC, just on ELB.

I am not able to work because of my PTSD.

Now is there any set of criteria they are going to ask me or they just look into my file and try to figure out if i deserve it or not.
I only served 4 years, because of my PTSD  and depression i could not continue.

Just wondering how this all works.
I feel terrible as well because im reading Vet that has 20 years service, and im here with only 4 years....

VAC will use the information in your file to determine whether or not you qualify. I'm CIA level 3 I was awarded the benefit 2 years ago. All I needed to do was apply.
