The process is exceedingly long Bulldozer. 48 weeks is excessive. Perhaps a call to the ombudsman is needed.

It's good to see you will receive the assistance from VAC you require XMedic.

Received word that my PTSD reassessment is complete. At the same time I was approved as DEC. My CM has scheduled a meeting at the end of the month to discuss what impact DEC will have and for me to complete my CIAS application. The whole process took seven months from the date I applied for reassessment.

Well I'm at "D-Day" plus four days and no word what was decided at the interdisciplinary committee meeting regarding my DEC designation. My therapist and psychiatrist as well as the March of Dimes assessment all recommended DEC. I guess I was hoping that the decision would be made last Thursday and my CM would let me know by Friday. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. They sure like to keep you guessing and waiting!

XMedic, I don't think it's automatic, so I would request a review the moment you get confirmation of DEC. Because the Liberals introduced a second set of CIA assessment criteria last year, that states that if you are DEC, and served between 10 and 20 years, you should be getting grade 2. But those new criteria and not going to apply to the CIA replacement benefit, the APSC. So you need to get that changed as quickly as possible, because the APSC will keep awarding the same grade that the Veteran was at, under the PIA, even if they would no longer qualify, based solely on their disabilities.

Thanks Artie Simm for the reply. It appears to be hit and miss.

from what I`ve read here, if you become DEC your CIA grade does not necessarily change, if I`m not mistaken there are vets on here who are DEC and at all the three Grade levels, DEC/CIA Grade 1,2 & 3. The only thing that might be "automatic" is that if you are deemed DEC , all you have to do after that is a apply for the CIA Suppliment ( regardless of what CIA Grade you are, or may move to) and you`re supposed to get the CIAS...however I just read on another site of a vet who said he was granted DEC, but VAC denied his CIA, CIAS ??, who knows what to believe
