    Help with DFAS and my retirement pay

    Hello @NJOnguard I infer you currently have a disability retirement since you state 60% DoD and the nature of this board. It is my understanding that in cases where a RC member initially receives a DoD disability retirement (CH 61) and then later, reaches the age retirement for his/her RC...

    ANG dual status technian

    I am not an expert on "Intent to File" procedures, but I successfully used it with my last claim. My comments are related to whether something is "on time" or within an allowable period. VA: "The date VA receives your intent to file will be protected as your effective date. However, the...

    TDRL 100% to PDRL 70% help

    CRDP in the scenario you describe will not exceed the dollar amount of the longevity portion of retired pay. CRDP does not restore waived non-longevity retired pay. Furthermore, if there is residual retired pay the combination of residual retired pay and CRDP cannot exceed the dollar amount...

    Title of thread: VA 100 and DOD 50 percent with over 22 years If your 22 years is active duty, and you have a VA rating of 50% or more, you would be eligible for CRDP which restores the longevity portion of retired pay. Using the same 22 years scenario, if you were rated by DoD at 30% or...

    Hello @jet351 Re: " I am an active duty CW4 in the U.S. Army with over 20 years of TIS. " I infer you qualify for a regular retirement. The following was offered: "So if 20 years = 50% and your DOD disability rating is 70% then you get 70% of your base pay for life! Since you have 20 years...

    Hello, You express yourself quite well. Ref: "What I'm trying to communicate is in my personal case, my unfitting conditions were rated 100 by both the VA and DOD when I was discharged from the military. I was placed on the TDRL and the VA rated my unfitting conditions at 100 and also rated...

    TDRL 100% to PDRL 70% help

    Hello @041n481 Re: "The military office of counsel has mostly been useless at this point. The attorney could not answer whether or not the DOD had to follow what the VA rated me at (100) since im P&T. Since I am 100 for the unfitting conditions and P&T by the VA, it seems asinine the DOD would...

    Closed Claim Confusion

    Often, a reply will not be available until the next day. No one is constantly monitoring the board (24/7) with hopes of having a question to answer. It is much like a convenience store...stop and go. Good luck, Ron

    Is there a time limit for applying for CRSC?

    I have never read of a CRSC application expiration date; I do not think there is one. There is a six-year barring rule for retroactive payment however. 2017: Here is how the Army explains the six year retro limitation: "There is a Six Year Statute of Limitations: CRSC is subject to the...

    Requesting help or a resource for help with a CRSC claim

    The processing time differs between services. I suspect the Army's process takes longer because they field more applications. Here is RaiderX's timeline (reported in January 2020): Timeline 8 Aug E-mailed packet to HRC 15 Aug Called HRC to verify receipt of documents and that every thing was...

    Hello @RVAroot Unfortunately, I do not know. I had a regular retirement 30 years ago and did not experience the disability process. My expertise is primarily in finance and I often research certain matters. However, it is best you hear from folks who know the real deal in this case. I...

    Requesting correction of record to reflect combat-related injuries instead of non-combat?

    Perhaps the type disability makes a difference. Military Times, 2013: "A review of recent actions shows that, in July, the [Army]Special Compensation Branch processed 321 CRSC claims for PTSD. Of those claims, 289 were approved, and 32 disapproved, for an approval rate of 90 percent. In August...
