But once the CIA becomes the APSC, they are eliminating those expanded criteria, and eligibility will once again depend solely on the severity of the disability.
so is this a good thing or a bad thing?

It is for the most part. Some members were able to get a higher grade simply based on time served. Others couldn't get a higher grade even tho disability might say so based on time served. So this in essence makes it more fair for everyone.

so then after April 1 it opens the door to some vets who feel they were short changed to resubmit for a change in their assigned CIA grade.?

No, it was easier to have it increased, under the current rules. Nobody that met the criteria for a higher grade, because of the severity of their disability, was ever refused, because they served too long. So if someone who lost both legs, wasn't going to be limited to only getting grade 3,  simply because they had served more than 20 years. They compared both sets of criteria, and whichever set, awarded the higher grade, then that was what they used.

Big Rex I would desagree since in my case it was the exact reason they gave me for giving me grade 3. Since I had way over 20 years of service. Word for word in there letter.

Yes, but would you have received a higher grade otherwise, if it been based solely on extent of your disability? If you were only getting the minimum CIA, if any, before they made those changes, they would have told you why you were assessed at, or remained at grade 3 , after they conducted their review.

So would they pay me a lump sum of $720 X 12= 8640 X 41= $354K for a lump sum payment under PFL? Or is there going to be black magic performed by VA ?

What is it so hard to understand? Under the PA you get a monthly pension. Under the NVC you get a lump sum.
Period. There are no negotiations.

Like check out the fucking website man.

Hi SIGS, you can earn the 20000 if you are DEC. The problem is if your a dual clinet of SISIP and VAC because SISIP will still claw back the money.

The year will run from 01 Jan to 31 Dec

pardon me for not knowing but I keep reading here in various threads about people being “ involved with SISIP”, what exactly does that mean, it’s been so long ago now, but when I was originally medically released I think I was under their care for the first 2 years that was it, then all my current income now comes from my mil pension and vac disability claims. Are their situations where SISIP is entwined in a veterans affairs forever.?

Sleeping Dog yes, when people release they are given the initial 2 years from SISIP. You are then assessed and you either continue on with them till 65 or booted off. VAC tops me up to the 90% as SISIP only does the 75%.

When the new system kicks in I believe all service related injuries and illnesses will be fully under VAC and those deemed partial or not due to service go under SISIP.
