    @SFC H So when the CRSC recipient fails to prove this to FERS (OPM) at the time they start their FERS retirement process, will OPM then report to DFAS to then stop the CRSC checks to stop & forfeit and ONLY left the retiree with FERS monthly checks?

    so just the CRSC approval alone will not be good enough for OPM/FERS? the PDRL Retirement Order or LOD that was part of the PEBLO IDES process MUST show Armed Conflict/Combat evidence for FERS to NOT interrupt the DoD & CRCS monthly pay?

    CRSC and FERS and NOT waiving military retired pay...

    Opinion: this is such a big decision & can affect the vet's future big time, but no forms on DFAS nor OPM mention this as a disclosure. Also very few HR or DFAS personnel warns or advises the veteran who just starting or starting the Buy Back inquiry.

    Quick summary from everyone input & rule of thumb for less than 20 mil years : Blue Card (Med Mil ret) AND with CRSC= Yes, do Buy Back asap vs. Blue Card (Med Mil ret) but NO CRSC= No, Do Not do Buy Back (yet*). CRSC decision is the main key here that determines whether your current ongoing...

    The decision letter uses "PEB stated disability is not combat-related" for the denial. I'm not sure what else besides 'Buddy Statement letter" I can contact former soldier to make it count as "Simulated War". The LOD I received mention my injury is from when I move the casualty dummie for the...
