Based on the timelines you have put up, mine should be close to being complete soon as well. I went to Step 3 about 10 days after yours did. Glad you got it favourable. Your default payment is PSC monthly, you have to call VAC and request the lump sum forms. Based on what I see on some Facebook groups, it will take a little bit of time.

So as I mentioned on another thread application was completed and I was able to see the results, based on the monthly amount I am assuming it is assessed at 5%. I don't understand how come it is not 10% since I even have a prescription for a masking device and I sent the prescription to VAC. Whats the process to get a reevaluation done? Has anyone done it and had success by going from 5 to 10%?

You'll need to appeal the decision.

I got 10 and I only had a prescription for anti depressants that apparently would work. I have not tried long enough to see if it really helps because I don’t want to become dependant. But that was enough for me to get 10. I would ask for them to look over it again.
