    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    Yah I'm sure it would be different in my own case, but even with that belief I still wouldn't risk it! Furthermore the MIR shouldn't be so freely suggesting it to members.

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    Ok Release Section had a variety of ways VR & 3B are different including (but not limited to): - Moving Entitlements - Government of Canada Priority Hire - Pension/Transfer value amount - Top ups from SISIP - VOC Rehab Basically its all different. Also, I got clarification from the medical...

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    I have sent out some emails to both CAF TG and the base Release Section to gain some insight. I'll post here with the latest information from more experienced and credible sources! Thanks everyone for the responses! Cheers

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    This is where I’m thinking the misunderstanding is taking place. However they need to understand exacting what they are telling people. There is a difference between saying “VR & 3B aren’t any different” and “VR & 3B aren’t hugely different aside from benefits X Y & Z”   There might only be a...

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    UPDATE: So despite everyone’s opinion here I’ve now been told by a second representative from my local health services unit “if you don’t want/can’t wait for a medical release just VR, as you have the same benefits from VAC”. So now that’s both someone in Case Management and someone from the...

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    I had requested a posting to CAF TG about 2 years ago when shit was coming off the rails. All of the CAFTG (IPSC/JPSU) briefings I'd seen up to that point used the analogy "If the member needs to take a knee, that's why we're here" so I figured perfect, I'll get over there, get some guidance...

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    Thank you for all of the information especially on the admin piece!  I have drafted a memo requesting posting to CAFTG as their guide states "RTD lasting beyond 180 days member may be posted to TG" My CofC (at least in the headquarters) appear to be more concerned about position numbers and...

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    How do I speed this process up? It sometimes feels like the system is designed in a way where you need to be (appear to be) the biggest bag of $hit going to get any sort of direction or help? ` What is the "no disclosure" option? Does it serve to speed up the decision? If so How?

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    Someone within the military medical system, who when pressed couldn't provide me with a reference to verify. I'll be following up with them especially seeing as that sort of inaccurate information could lead someone into a really tough spot.

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    So I've always heard form pretty well everyone "don't get frustrated & VR, wait for your medical release if you are entitled to one". Now (unsurprisingly) my file is taking forever to get to Ottawa and back and this is only going to take longer as COVID19 is making the backlog worse, I've...

    For Sale Size 10 Lowa Supercamps

    In fact I think they are made by HanWag for Lowa, either way I have the same boots (HanWag version) and they are superior to any boot I've had and the calf skin leather inside is super comfortable.

    Helmets 2 Hardhats [Merged]

    I would rather them give vets priority for public service jobs, and I think the average CF vet is overqualified for construction jobs and it would be a step backwards for some?
