I would greatly appreciate help calculation if submitting a CRSC packet is worth it:

I served 21 years active and retired a SFC, my retirement pay is 1736
I am 100% service connected for PTSD alone, without the PTSD I'm still at 95%.
I currently receive:
1736 retired pay
3700 for VA dis (with some Special compensations (loss of organs))

what would be the CRSC/VA/retired pay compute to?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't found anyone who know how to compute this.

What is the gross pay on your DFAS RAS (i.e. amount before any deductions)?

What percentage do you expect to be approved for CRSC?

What type retirement do you have?
Regular
Reserve
TERA
Disability

If disability...what was your retired percentage by DoD?

Is 21 years precisely the amount of active duty or are some months involved?

Are you currently receiving CRDP? See page 2 of you RAS and provide amount.

Hi,

Excellent reply with the info (yours).

Most of the cases I see here are disability retirements and associated CRSC. "Computations" for regular retirees is much simpler.

Your current gross pay is 2207 with CRDP.
IF your approved CRSC percentage by your service is 100%, your CRSC will be 2207.

CRSC is non-divisible with a former spouse and it is non-taxable.

Bottom line:
If your CRSC is approved @ 100%, then CRSC is probably your best choice. If the CRSC is approved at less than 100%, then CRDP will be your best choice. This applies to your particular case.

Reason: With an example retired pay of 3000 and VA at 3500:
a. Retired pay (and CRDP) = 3000 under CRDP choice. Total in this CRDP example 3000 ret pay/CRDP + 3500 VA = 6500 received each month
b. CRSC @ 50% (using random number of 1500) results in
3000 retired pay reduced by 3500 VA comp = zero retired pay. CRSC replaces only 1500; the rest is "lost."
Total in this CRSC @ 50% example: 3500 VA + 1500 CRSC = 5000 received each month

Ron,
If they approve the CRSC with they give me a percentage and amount with the option to go with either CRSC or CRDP first?

DFAS will automatically begin paying the one which results in the most money to you. They will also send you a letter giving you the option to change it if you prefer.

I believe that letter includes the amounts involved.
