All in saying is, if you have exactly 26 years left to live and you happen to get a full pay rate. It's the only fair shake.
Please correct me if anyone has better info
I don't have any better info, and I certainly hope you're right, but barring specific wording from VAC I'm really skeptical that any lump sum would NOT take into account any previous monies paid with regards to the $360,000 max payout.
In my case, I'm 32, and assessed at 100% in 2008, so I've been paid roughly $300k in total. I can't imagine VAC would pay me ANOTHER $360k, bringing me to a total of $660k, when a veteran who gets 100% in, say, 2020 would only be paid $360k.
To be clear, I'm not going off any info whatsoever, and I'm happy to be wrong, but just knowing how VAC works, I'd place it at about 90% chance that they DO deduct monies paid. So, in my case, my lump sum should be roughly $60k, even though I'm assessed at 100%.
