well, seeing as it's an election year, and the time frame for these payments, just happen to overlap the campaign period, you just know that they are going to politicize it. The Liberals will blame the Tories, because they refused to backdate the un-reduced ELB payments, when they cancelled the clawback. And the Tories will blame the Liberals for fighting the Veterans in court. And the NDP will blame both parties, because they are both to blame, even though the NDP would likely have done the same thing, if they had ever been in power. And meanwhile the Veterans will likely have to wait until just before the election, as if this money will buy votes. They're doing the same thing with the SRB. They knew last year that they were going to have to pay out that money, and it was included in their financial forecast, but yet, we are likely not getting the money until the end of September, 3 weeks before the election, on Oct 21st. That can't be a coincidence.

ELB Class Action Law Suit Settlement Reached Empty Update

Post by Riddick on Tue 21 May 2019, 15:33

From MDLO (Michel Drapeau Law Office) MAY 16, 2019

QUOTE: Veterans Affairs Canada (“VAC”) will be responsible for distributing settlement funds under the approved Settlement Agreement.

VAC has been preparing its distribution protocol for Class Members and eligible estates. Distribution of settlement funds to Class Members and eligible estates will commence through direct deposit and/or cheque in June 2019.

Each Class Member and estate eligible to receive a payment under the approved settlement will be receiving a letter from VAC detailing the amount of settlement payment they are entitled to receive. An individualized calculation will be included in the letter explaining how the recipient’s entitlement under the settlement was determined.

The letter will also include additional payment instructions, such as the method for requesting a replacement cheque in the event a Class Member has died.

To assist with the efficient distribution of settlement payments, Class Members and estate representatives are urged to ensure VAC has up-to-date contact and banking information. UNQUOTE

Eclairez-moi svp!
Entre Novembre 2006 et aujourd'hui j'ai ELB.
Entre 2006 et 2012 j'avais une pension d'invalidité à 25% déduit de ELB.
Aujourd'hui j'ai la pension d'invalidité de 25%( entre 2006 et 2012) et 75% d'indemnité d'invalidité pour un total de 100%.
Ma question : est ce que je vais avoir comme remboursement le 25% ( 2000$ par tranche de 5%, ce qui donne un total de 10000$)

Je vais avoir un remboursement qui tient compte du grand total de 100% aujourd'hui ( 25%pension+ 75%indemnite d'invalidité= 100%)???
Merci beaucoup pour la réponse.

There is a disclaimer regarding the letter(s):

If you received a Notice but did not receive, or qualify for, ELB, CFIS, or WVA between 2006 and 2012, and were therefore not subject to any deduction of Pension Act benefits during that period, you are not a Class Member and cannot benefit from settlement of the Class Action.

Hard to say if you are part of the Class Wildthing......but ...never say never.

Email sent never hurts to ask. Thanks again riddick, not expecting it doesn't hurt to ask though.

I did qualify for elb but wasn't recieving it because i refused rehab, it didn't make any sense to put myself through something i could not do. I lost more than the clawback but that was the policy and the hoops of the day that determined if you got "just compensation".
Never did do rehab and i am eelb and should have been compensated after the nurses visit many years ago when i was completely immobile and spent a year confined to the inside of my house. I will contact them thanks Riddick.

Not all vets are part of the Class, but, It is not only for people who were "on" ELB either.   There are and will be others who will/are be part of the class without having been on ELB  Most will have received a letter/notification, however:

All members of the Class have been identified by VAC and sent a Notice in the mail in August 2016. If you have not received a Notice but believe you are part of this class, please contact Class Counsel.

Riddick, basically, you need to have been approved for ELB, prior to May 2012, to be a class member, whether or not you actually received any ELB benefits. Because, there were only two programs, that were introduced by the NVC, that used the PA pension to reduce the monies paid, the ELB, and the CFIS, which is the program that is available, when you are no longer eligible for the ELB.

Yes, but since the only other NVC benefit that also deducted the PA pension, was the CFIS. But since you can only qualify for the CFIS, once your ELB is stopped, it's kind of a moot point. The amount that had been deducted, or for how long, or from which benefit, does not matter. Just that  that it had been deducted.
