Chapter 5 > Financial Support for Veterans

Budget 2016 [...] proposes significant enhancements to financial benefits for modern-day veterans. The proposed investment includes [...] expanding access to higher grades of the Permanent Impairment Allowance to better support veterans who have had their career options limited by a service-related illness or injury. The potential impact of the permanent and severe impairments on veterans' career advancement opportunities would be considered in determining the appropriate level of financial support. The benefit would also be renamed Career Impact Allowance to better reflect the intent of the program.
