If the 2016 increase to the disability award is $310,000, I would be happy with a cheque NOW for the difference between what I received in 2009 and the new 2016 figure. When 2017 rolls around, I'll take the balance then. I don't want to sound greedy, but the difference between paying me the lump sum benefit versus the proper pension I should've received is hundreds of thousands of dollars, so I have no problem and no guilt whatsoever asking for what is properly due to ALL of us. Frankly, The 60,000 or 70,000 top up is still a fairly modest amount, when compared to other NATO countries injured veterans compensation schemes. I wonder what stand Equitas is going to take on these new changes.
