    SISIP LTD 2002 - 2018

    Can someone tell me why SISIP LTD is terminated at age 65 ??  Is that just an arbitrary age or based on the 1960's "old age" ?? With most people living well beyond 65, this creates a genuine hardship for those disabled when they need it most...(considering most vets also get their claw-back at...

    SISIP LTD 2002 - 2018

    Marriage Breakdown - pension split

    When I first posted this inquiry, I had googled some case law and found that VAC pensions/awards ARE "shareable", even tho they are for personal disability.  Speaking to my own lawyer a few years ago after a car accident, he told me that any money received due to the accident for injuries was...

    Thanks Teager...but I seem to recall some document stating that you could show the service provider your VIP auth and a CRA decision that allows non-payment of GST/HST...My quest continues.

    A while back I read something, either on here (search was not found) or somewhere else, on the VIP, whereas it was determined by CRA that VIP payments for grass/snow/house-keeping etc are not GST/HST applicable.  Does anyone have a ref on this ?? Thanks

    I'm a "hybrid" vet client, pension act and NVC.  I receive a small Exceptional Incapacity Allowance from them.  Is there a bar from me also getting a PIA ??? Thanks

    Decision Letter

    I really hate to be the one, BUT with VAC you'd better have patience, lots of it.  The system is designed to say "no" on first app.  Unfortunately, that's just the way it is.  Be ready with an appeal too.

    SISIP LTD 2002 - 2018

    I took the plunge and contacted my SISIP case manager. Good news, so it appears...Maybe some others who are affected can glean some valuable info (and dollars) from this response: 'Certainly.  We would only deduct for CPP Disability.  Should you decide to take CPP retirement you would receive...

    VAC Client Card - 'A' client vs 'A&B' client

    Slightly off-topic, but i think relevant never the less: Yesterday I testified at the VRAP board for an increase.  My Advocate, VAC lawyer, was reading to the board the VAC policy on a specific item.  She had to read it 3 times..and the board members were astounded.  It was so vague, you could...

    SISIP LTD 2002 - 2018

    I was told by SISIP, shortly before releasing, that at the 2 year mark, if my medical practitioner stated I was still disabled, I'd have to apply for CPP Disability.  If I was turned down, SISIP would continue (for how long, I have no idea). So from these responses, it appears I can delay, buy...

    SISIP LTD 2002 - 2018

    I was med released in Oct 2013.  I was granted the 2 year SISIP benefit, & was told by SISIP that at the end of that 2 year period, I'd have to apply for CPP Disability if still disabled.  In 6 months I turn 60.  Am I forced to apply for regular CPP at that time, so SISIP can claw-back their...
