I would offer that people check and double check before accepting PLD. Do not take for granted that you think you are entitled. A soldier of mine was given PLD in Toronto upon enrolment, attended St Jean, then the ATC. When the soldier arrived in Petawawa at the unit, and processed through the IRPP consultant, they flagged the PLD payments. It was investigated by the Base Comptroller, consulted with Ottawa. Result - not entitled and $10,000 taken off the soldiers pay. Soldier had a spouse as well.
