Hello, I made a crsc calculator for download that is pretty easy to use. link after smiley face......................:)CRSC BOOK.xlsx
Thank you for your contribution. I ran a couple of simple scenarios through it and the results were accurate. I was curious how it treated residual retired pay and that type case was accurate as well; however, it did not show that the retiree also retains the residual retired pay (plus the CRSC) nor does it address the limitation that the combination of residual retired pay and CRSC cannot exceed the longevity portion of retired pay. The math was correct; the lack of an explanation might result in questions.

Perhaps, that could be addressed in your accompanying YouTube narrative.

Will you be available to answer questions concerning the mechanics of the calculator?

Nice job...

Ron

Hello Ron, thankyou for the reply. The calculator only displays crsc pay. It does account for retired residual, and it also caps the result at the longevity portion of the dod pay. I didn't think to include a total combined income.
Of course i am available to go over the mechanics of the calculator, and i apologize if i give slow responses, my health isn't the greatest right now.

Yes, I noticed the cap and the fact that residual retired pay was considered when presenting the CRSC.

I mentioned those items only because of the questions I have fielded.

I relate to the poor health situation. Same here.

Your calculator gave accurate answers to my test questions.

Common issues regarding CRSC estimates.
—Inability of the retiree to provide high three OR gross retired pay.
—Confusion about the use of active duty time or active duty equivalent needed for computation of longevity portion of retired pay.
—incorrect data for other elements needed for estimate.

This is what I usually request.
Information necessary for CRSC estimate:
—High three average base pay OR the gross retired pay on DFAS RAS (which is preferred)
—DoD disability percentage
—Active duty years OR active duty equivalent years for those with reserve time (total points divided by 360)
—VA compensation percentage; amount; and dependents (category, number, and ages of children)
—Approved CRSC percentage
—Other type military retirement eligibility info

the calculation for crsc can be a little confusing, for me it was wrapping my head around the crsc offset and the 3 other steps to finally get to the pay. i see alot of questions posted in this site and around the internet regarding crsc pay and estimate without clear simple answers(except here, you taking the time to calculate individually for people). while this calculator wont change anything with the info it provides, i just hope this soothes some idle hands in the long wait that alot of us on this forum endure.

Re: "...for me it was wrapping my head around the crsc offset and the 3 other steps to finally get to the pay."

CRSC is a replacement for some or all of the VA offset (waiver/reduction of retired pay) required in certain circumstances.

I have seen receiving CRSC (off and on) since 2006 and doing estimates for 10 years or more.
What was difficult for me was the lack of an example of the steps. I finally learned through Mike Parker (maparker) of this site that one needs to remember the various limits/ceilings and the applicable laws and determine how to derive the product desired. Obviously, one needs knowledge of how to compute retired pay as well.

Regards,
Ron

Great job on creating a functional tool. This issue comes up frequently and your tool will help many people. I am glad @RonG reviewed your tool. It is alway good to have confirmation that the formulas... are accurate. Programming bugs are fairly common so a second set of eyes is great!
