Veterans Review and Appeal Board

Pension for Life
Through Pension for Life (PFL), the Government of Canada is introducing a modernized suite of programs and benefits to assist Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP members, Veterans and their families with the transition to post-service life, and to compensate for pain and suffering resulting from service-related injuries. Some PFL benefits can be appealed to the Veterans Review and Appeal Board. Ask your representative about how the implementation of PFL on April 1, 2019 may affect your case. Learn more here.
