Hey all, got the letter for my spouse in Jan but it basically says it couldn't estimate benefits as information was missing from his file. He is over 100%. I called to see what they needed and they said "oh he has a claim in progress"....he doesn't, although his DEC was at the 2 year review. The VAC agent said if he is at 100% he likely getting nothing anyways, but their website factsheet gives a working example for a man the same age as him and same % getting PFL so I am not sure what to make of this. The DEC review should be done soon, but I can't see how that would have any bearing on the PFL. Any one else in a similar situation?

Seems plain and simple (with those idiot++ at VAC). More 'pain and suffering, aka: over 100%) you have .... less $$ for you. Boggles one's mind.

Happy voting next election.

I don't believe all the information is here? Not everyone at 100% will be treated the same. If a person is 100% DA (NVC) vs 100% PA is totally different come Apr 01. A person can be say 50 - 50 (meaning 50% PA and 50% DA), VAC will only consider the 50% DA he/she would have received and do the calculations using that percentage. CIA/CIAS has nothing to do with a person's percentage per se. Yes it will provide more financial support but it will not increase (or decrease) a person's overall percent of disability.

Umbrella, the problem is, the amount of PFL he will receive will depend on more than just the 100% disability. It also depends on his age, and when he received his disability award(s).

they are fracked. at over 100% whatever buyout he got is what he got . it aint goona change even if he has 100 new claims in. DEC will have nothing to do with this .at 100% he obviously applied for benefits so they have his age name and other particulars . he has obviously been approved for benefits so they would have the dates of the approval and amounts . they don't need anything else .

umbrella I think you were speaking with an idiot .

try again maybe you will get to speak with someone who isn't .

ya ya I know but hey it could happen.

Well my biggest concern was that the VAC person indicated that anyone who was at 100% would not be eligible yet their own factsheet gives an example of an individual who was 100% and they were going to receive the monthly pfl. I was hoping maybe someone here was in a similar boat. I understand it varies based on when the award was received and after doing some basic calculations myself I believe he will get something every month.

I will take your advice propat and maybe give them another call to see what's up.

Like I said, what he will get, will depend on more than just being 100%. A Veteran who is in his 30s, and got his 100% award a decade ago,would likely get a decent PFL, because the clawback would be spread out over roughly 50 years. But a Veteran who is close to 60, and got his disability award in 2018, likely won't get any PFL, because the amount to pay back is much higher, but only has 20 years or so, to pay back that amount.

a good friend of mine his PFL payment is between $850-$900 a month based on his young age when they medically released him and payed his 100 % lump sum back in late 2006 as for me mine is going to be around $650-$700 based on my age and most of my lump sum being paid out back in 2008-2009. Another friend who is much older and is 100% is only going to see between $100 -$125 and we got our lump sum payment around the same time but the age gap between us is very different.

Sounds like age=based discrimination to me. Any layers there?
