The BPA has been a big help to me on three seperate occassions over the past ten years. These are legal experts who can review the reason(s) for an unfavorable decision then give you advice on how to proceed with an appeal. They will inform you of the information (e.g doctor reports, witness statements, etc) you require to help in a legal arguement before the VRAB. They will also research legal cases and gather information to support their arguements which will then be presented to the VRAB. Conversely, if the BPA feels you do not have a chance at a successful appeal then they will advise you to withdraw your case. The decision is yours to make!

The BPA can also review any favourable decisions you receive from VAC as well. For example, if you were awarded a Grade Five level on an EIA application then you can ask the BPA to review this matter. The BPA may determine that your medical conditions and information you original submitted warrants a Grade Four level and they can help you appeal this decision. On the other hand, they may suggest you are fairly compensated at Grade Five level. Also, the BPA can review any successfull disability application to ensure you were given the correct percentage.

All of my experiences have been good with the BPA.

From my Experience they were great help. I had denied claim, and they got me approved 4/5, and got 29% of it. Took a long time to get everything done but the Advocate that help me was on point and great during the hearing. I did mine on the phone.

The Bureau of Pension Advocates is part of VAC and yet on the surface they go to bat for veterans who may have gotten a raw deal. What have been people’s experience with them, did their involvement help your claim, or are they just one more organization in the back pocket of the GOC?
