How do I know if I'm part of the class action?

Yes, I got mine as well. And it says the payment will be made shortly, if it's not already in your account. So class memebers should start keeping an eye on their bank accounts.

Got my notice in Myvac account. It shows as $491.08 Per percentage point of disability so that would be 2455.40 per 5%.

EZ rider, whenever they give you such a wide range of possible payouts, always assume that VAC will pay the lowest amount possible. Then if it's more, you can be pleasantly surprised.

"Class counsel learned earlier this week from counsel for Veterans Affairs Canada (“VAC”) that VAC is still finalizing the letters referred to in our May 24, 2019 update, which include individualized calculation information for payments to Class Members or their eligible estates under the approved settlement.

We are now informed that VAC intends to distribute the letters to Class Members and known estates beginning the week of July 8, 2019".

Yes BigRex is rarely off the mark......

I haven't called but I certainly will if I see nothing end June... it's no surprise VAC will drag this out to the bitter end....wonder if MDLO got their chunk tho:?:

On another note I did ask MDLO if it's $2000 per 5% or $2500 per 5%...could be a big difference to some....no answer, anyone else see anything different?

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.

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

Contactez MDLO pour une réponse en français si vous ne trouvez pas la réponse sur la page FAQ.

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.
