Disabled veterans--who are over age 65, condemned to a life of poverty after the cessation of their SISIP, ELB and LTD (long-term disability) payments, and limited to CPP disability benefits and their military pensions subject to the bridging claw back - will be most adversely affected.
Caption: On May 1, 2012, the Federal Court made its decision regarding the offset of Pension Act disability benefits from the Service Income Security Insurance Plan (SISIP).
The SISIP scam has been eradicated after many years of battle, but many veterans continue to suffer financial hardship and must seek alternative sources of treatment for the disabling wounds, injuries and sicknesses they succumbed to in the service of Canada.
Before October 2011 the New Veterans Charter (NVC) and the Service Person's Income Security Insurance Plan (SISIP) provided for 75% of a Canadian Forces member's salary at release--the two programs were exactly the same.
I have just received information from ANAF Veterans in Canada that a class action is being undertaken on behalf of SISIP recipients whose payments are being reduced by the amount of VAC disability pensions.
Finally, we will respect Canada's obligations to our military by ending the unfair reduction of pensions for retired and disabled Canadian Forces and RCMP veterans and stopping the unjust cuts to the Service Income Security Insurance Plan (SISIP) for medically released members of the Canadian Forces and former RCMP members.
I continue to press the government to resolve the unfair claw back of SISIP pensions for disabled veterans, better support for soldiers and veterans suffering from PT8D, full compensation and a public inquiry for victims of Agent Orange/defoliant spraying at CFB Gagetown and the extension of the home care (VIP) program for all widows and CF and RCMP veterans.
Prior to the New Veterans Charter, Canadians Forces members participated in a mandatory DND-implemented, long-term disability (income replacement) insurance program administered by SISIP Manulife.
The Harper Conservatives committed to resolving the clawback of Service Income Security Insurance Plan (SISIP) pensions for disabled veterans, extending the VIP for all widows and veterans, revamping the Veterans Review and Appeal Board, and fully compensating all victims of herbicide spraying at CFB Gagetown from 1950-1984 and holding a public inquiry.
However, they do go through a great deal of paperwork to provide SISIP Disability Insurance (operated through Manulife) and Canada Pension Plan applications for those soldiers so medically unfit to work.
If the soldier is too wounded as to be unemployable, he/she is forced out of the military and put on SISIP, the insurance plan paid into by all CF members, which pays a reduced salary of 75 per cent of the soldier's previous income.
What happened to the surpluses the SISIP Plan accumulated?
