5.13 MRCA - Service giving rise to injury is Permanent Forces (PF) – Section 141 & 164

Document
Last amended

The following formula is applicable when the person:

  • Was injured in PF

  • Is discharged

  • Last service immediately before ceasing to be a member was as a PF member (section 141) or part-time Reservist and the last period of FT service was as a PF member (section 164).

Note: If the person's last service was a part-time reservist and their last FT service was CFTS, then section 168 or section 170-172 applies. See section 5.14.

NE = ADF rate of pay for the week + normal pay-related allowances for the week + remuneration amount

where:

  • ADF rate of pay means the amount of pay the member would have received for the week as a PF member if not incapacitated for service.

  • pay related allowances means the total compensable pay-related allowances that the member would have received for the week as a PF member if not incapacitated for service.

  • Remuneration amount is a loading included in normal earnings to compensate a member for the non-salary benefits of being a full-time serving member.  It is only included in normal earnings where normal earnings are calculated by reference to a full-time ADF rate of pay and the person is no longer a full-time serving member.

The military pay scales are used to establish normal ADF pay (which, where applicable, includes Service Allowance).

The former member's rank and pay group at the time of his discharge from the Permanent Forces is the basis for determining NE.  Any subsequent promotions obtained while a Reservist after discharging from the Permanent Forces do not count towards the calculation of NE.

5.13.1 Normal weekly hours

Normal weekly hours for a former member whose last service before discharge was as a PF member or part-time Reservist is 37.5hrs.
