No, you just have to have a severe disability. I was only at around 80% when I was approved DEC.

so you have to be 100% in disability claims before suggesting to a cm to apply for DEC on your behalf?

So my CM got in touch with me about the DEC designation and said that MoD recommended DEC and the next step is for my CM to represent my file to an internal VAC interdisciplinary committee which makes the final decision on designation. He indicated that there was strong evidence for the DEC designation and, therefore, the CIAS supplement. He will contact me next week to let me know how it goes and to set up a time to sign the CIAS application if I get the designation. Smile

This is all 'delay' tactics at VAC. My CM informed me that DEC was approved but did not tell me (nor did I have the clarity of mind to ask) to apply for CIAS. So, I waited for two weeks for the 'letter from VAC). I lost at least of two weeks worth of payment from CIAS.

Yes, you need to wait until you have word from your case manager. Otherwise you may not be entered into the system yet and it may foul up your application. My DEC was effective November 23rd this year and I heard from my case manager on November 27th, four days later. I know the effective date from the paperwork I received regarding DEC after I spoke to my CM about it.

Thanks Teager. Can I then apply for CIA review and CIAS just on the word of March of Dimes or should I wait for VAC to confirm this. I just don't want to waste time waiting if I don't have too.

You need to be DEC before you can apply for CIAS. You should also be DEC before the review unless you have other medical evidence that supports the criteria for a higher level. If March of Dimes says DEC VAC will give you the DEC.

Just a question...if the March of Dimes after completing your assessment recommends DEC for someone already getting the CIA, does VAC automatically approve the DEC designation for the veteran or can they decide not to approve it? Should I go ahead and apply for a CIA review and the CIA supplement or wait to hear from my CM? Thanks for any advice provided! XMedic Smile

You can't be denied the CIA supplemant. Only veterans deemed DEC are eligible for the supplement. However, for those who are unable to apply before April 1, 2019 will not be eligible. The supplement is being removed from the benefit stream, except for those grandfathered in.

You should also qualify for CIA as well, but I can't say which level. As of April 1, 2019 the CIA will become the Additional Pain and Suffering Compensation.

I was approved for CIA about 2 and a half years ago. I applied for a review of my CIA level and the supplement upon being deemed DEC.
