Hi Bigrex,

I do realize that because I have 33.5 years of service that my time served is not a factor in determining my (particular) CIA Grade Level. My (Guided Assistance) CM strongly recommended that I request a review of my CIA level based on my medical/physical limitations. So I did and she sent me a message stating that it was a very good decision to request a review. I expect that I will have an answer sometime in May.

Just talked with my Cm and she said that I was deemed DEC and that I will get the cias. She just said it’s not all updated yet on the vac account, because of so much on the go with maintenance and so many DEC applications. So that’s good news. How much is cias, and is it taxable? Thanks

Bigrex, how do they determine the grade level tho? I only first applied for cia in January ( was the first I knew anything about it) and I got level 1. Now that I think I’m deemed DEC (applied for it and CIAs in February, and vac account benefits changed to extended earnings loss ). Is there a table or anything online to determine the level or just by the years served? Thanks

In order to receive the CIA increase to grade 2 or 1, you need to have been deemed DEC, AND have more than 5 or 15 years left to serve, respectively, out of a 25 year career. So since you both served more than 20 years, you would not qualify.  Gunner, this was added last year, because the earlier in your career, before being medically released, the less CF pension, you could accumulate, if any. Honestly, this policy really only benefited those released with under 10 years, because not only do they get the highest level of CIA, anyone who served more than 10 years, is having their CF pension deducted from the ELB anyways.

Why does the time served matter so much for cia level? I served 7 years. Thanks

Hi Bigrex,

I served 33.5 years. DEC got me to Grade level 3 and my medical condition got me a "strongly recommend that you request a review of your Grade level" by my CM (actually Guided Assistance) as I don't technically have a CM now that I am DEC.

An add on to my last post. My CM strongly encouraged me to apply for a review of my grade level. She told me that she could only strongly recommend that I request a review and could do nothing more at that time. So I have a review request submitted, but, with the changes going on in VAC my request has been uploaded in my VAC account but hasn't been entered into my "application status."

I agree with Nurse. I was declared DEC last December and I am only CIA 3. In for a review of this level but nonetheless CIA 3.

Sorry, not necessarily true. I was declared DEC last fall, no change to CIA level 3.

Gunner
if you are declared to have a DEC, l think you are automatically made CIA2, could be wrong though

Yes, as long as you have served less than 20 years. Or even grade 1, if you served less than 10 years.
