Whether you are still active in the military or are a retired veteran, your injuries, whether physical or mental health related (including PTSD) can make it difficult to adjust to normal routines, social interactions or responsibilities.

Rules regarding eligibility depend on a number of factors, but primarily on the status of the particular CAF member. CAF members in the Regular Force, Reserve Force or Class C service and Primary Reserve Force or Class A and B Service are eligible for SISIP LTD coverage.
In general the benefit is 75% of salary, however calculation rules may differ depending on class of service, as some optional coverage is available for reserve members.
All LTD claims have deadlines and time-frames to make claims. It is best to make inquiries about the deadlines that apply to you as soon as possible so that you do not miss any potential time limits or deadlines that could result in you not being able to pursue your benefits.
