    Anyone know when our MOS review might be complete?

    Fortunately I didn't lose any money. May pay was protected at the PO2 spec 2. But in reality feel like I am losing money. I earned my promotion just like everyone else does, and the whole time I was working towards it the pay raise was a motivator. I think the situation is unfair. The effective...

    Anyone know when our MOS review might be complete?

    I was promoted to PO1 (and I was assuming I would be bumped up to Spec2 level zero at the new rank) from PO2 Spec2. My pay is exactly the same as the day before I was promoted. No incentive level. No raise. I understand that when the review is complete any pay I am owed will be back dated. IF...

    Anyone know when our MOS review might be complete?

    Anyone hear when this might be done? It would have been nice to get a raise after my promotion, but until the review is done I get the same amount I did as my lower rank. Bitter pill to swallow. Also wondering if recruiting centers have adjusted their "Pitch" for this trade. Spec pay was a...

    Home Equity Assistance & "Military Families Pushed to Financial Ruin" (Merge)

    I think the way that HEA is calculated as well should be reviewed. It should be based on the required appraisal amount, not on purchase price. Unless the member is familiar to the rules prior to purchasing a home, they will find out the hard way when they apply for HEA basing their application...

    Redress of Grievance – Mega thread [MERGED]

    Read the CFPAS handbook, use it and apply it to your situation. Then go speak with your supervisor with your case, along with any documentation you may have. If it comes to a redress and you have a valid case it may go your way. Then again it may not. Because you see things one way does not...

    Veterans being ‘kept in the dark’ when applying for disability benefits: Ombudsm

    The process is flawed. For example when you make an application you are asked to describe your disability and how it affects life etc. From my denial of claim letter I knew that the things that I had written down weren't even taken into consideration. I received a phone call from a local VAC...

    VIP Reassessments

    Yup, I was in for an assesment with a VAC Dr. and was told that I should apply for VIP, but I will not recieve it until after I am released. Until then CF will be on the hook for it. Not sure how the process is supposed to work. Sure hope they don't tell me to suck it up when I ask for...

    HELP! I need get out of submarines

    You can submit a memo with a request form to return to general service. Not sure why there would be a CRB unless there is more to the issue. Such as you are under training and delinquent. If you are under training you need to get that done before requesting anything. Posting from submarines to...

    I asked for all information regarding to my trade online, I'll check the link tomorrow at work on DWAN. I wrote an email to a Major in Ottawa. He asked me which duties I had carried out in my trade and a few days later he had the link with job descriptions for each job I had done in my trade. It...

    Care & Control/ Refuse to breathalyze

    You are clearly in denial. If you were having a social drink you would have planned ahead, or just taken the breathalyzer. Seek help through counseling. Get your supervisor involved let him know you have a problem and need help. This is not a wrong place wrong time issue. You made a choice now...

    Ship's Boarding Party [Merged]

    Not sure if this is on topic. I was on deployment in the Gulf years ago. The BOSUN's were teaching people how to fire .50 Cal so they could man the weapon during choke point transits. One particular person would not fire the weapon as they were afraid that they might kill some fish as they shot...

    Medical Release ( merged )

    It really depends on your personal situation. I would recommend getting treatment. Meds are not the only way to do this. If your injury is CF related you may be entitled to a disability award and other benefits from Veterans Affairs Canada. Have you gone to your local IPSC? Used to be SPHL...

    Financial Planning for Retirement

    Umm, so where have you been receiving your paycheque from during you time in service? I know mine comes from the government. And yes I use it to pay my mortgage and other things. Are you saying I am making bad financial decisions by using my pay to pay for a mortgage? Really?

    Pension contributions to increase to 50:50

    Yes it mentions there retirement age is changing nothing about pension contributions or how much they recieve after they serve, I may be off a bit, seven years. I think they are entitled to 70% pension, and after 3 years they are entitled to a 70,000 severance package.
