It makes no real no difference, because even those people who had CIA approved before April, had it converted to the APSC amounts. So regardless of what they use as the application date, if approved, the payments will be the same.

would this mean they would apply CIA criteria or APSC criteria?

any ideas why it would have been changed, and what the impact would be (negative or positive)
the actual submitted form shows a date of april 2

Not sure...When did you apply..Did you apply for CIAS before Apr 1...Is time in service the difference before and after Apr 1

this was an APSC application (CIA), as there is no more CIAS. first application. as i said, it was actually submitted april 2
as for time in service, that is no longer a consideration for APSC

CIA and APSC, are basically the same thing. They just they made the APSC tax free. ADLs are only part of the criteria. it also includes amputations, blindness, hearing loss, severe mental illness, etc.

I got my APSC in March and I wasnt DEC
You do not need to be DEC to get APSC, as long as you meet the medical criteria.
if you are receiving any level of CIA , can you still apply for APSC? When you say the veteran must meet the medical criteria for APSC are you referring to the ADLs .?

I’m just playing devils advocate, but a veteran could be diagnosed as “ psychotic” but still be able to feed,bath,dress themselves etc.

I was at level 3, and a couple of wks ago put in a departmental review due to new evidence, to move up levels. It’s all a crap shoot, and I’m not sure I will move. But will advise of there reply. The old policy also had yrs served in there. I don’t recall seeing this in the new policy.
 Maybe Bigrex or others up on the policy can chime in..VVV...
What about veterans who are way up there on the disability % , I.e. close to 100% but can still complete most if not all of the ADL’s, where would they fall in an Additional Pain and Suffering application.?
