Request confirmation the following figures are correct. I believe this is a case (on and after 1 January 2013) where no CRSC is payable. I believe the significant factors to be: the DoD disability payment ($4584) is much more than either the LOS or CRSC aspects of the case.

Information used:

VA: 90% (wife and 3 children under 18)

DoD disability: 70%

CRSC: 80%

LOS: 17 yr 8 mo

High three: $6548.10

Dod Disability pmt at 70%: $4583.67

The entitlement ON AND AFTER 1 January 2013:

The veteran should be getting (from the VA and DoD) an amount equal to his total VA ($2,073) and the lesser of these two amounts:

The LOS amount ($2892.95) (LOS calculation (Retirement base $6548.10 x 44.18% (17 yr 8 mo x 2.5%) = $2892.95)

or

The VA compensation for Combat related disabilities based on 80% CRSC Rating= $1844

In this case, the CRSC is the lesser amount.

The total VA/DoD compensation should be $2,073 (Total VA) + $1844 (CRSC amount) = $3917

He receives $4584 from DoD in disability retirement (of which $2073 is offset by VA)=

$2511 net

$3917 minus $4584=zero CRSC Amount

SUMMARY: The payments by type should be --

$2,073 from the VA,

$2511 for disability retirement

$0.0 for CRSC

TOTAL: $4584
