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.
Yes, I noticed the cap and the fact that residual retired pay was considered when presenting the CRSC.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.
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.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
Hello,So I used this calculator and just want to be sure I did it right if someone could verify
high 3 4046
DOD disbility 70%
14 years 4 months
va 100% one spouse two children under 18
CRSC rating 90% (computed approx 2132 from VA table is what I'm unsure of)
Medically retired no redux and never opted into Blended.
The calc I got was 1445.88
Can anyone help me verify
Hello @Denny ,Thanks for the confirmation Ron. Still don’t understand how it work
Ron I was just saying it sarcastically about how it is calculated. That excel is a godsend and I know what numbers I used its just a lot is all.Hello @Denny ,
I am unsure of what you mean. I provided the estimated amount of CRSC you will receive (same as the Edwards' amount) CRSC = 1448.47 paid by DFAS
You will also receive 3000+ from the VA as VA compensation. The total of the two is more than 4500 each month. Generally, for Chapter 61 retirees, CRSC is the lesser
--of the dollar amount of the longevity portion of the retired pay (your case)
-- the amount associated with the approved CRSC percentage approved by one's service. Your amount was greater than 2000 so I did not extract the precise amount from the VA comp Tables.
If not for CRSC, which replaces some or all of waived retired pay, you would receive only the 3000+ from the VA.
The law requires that a military retiree waive a portion of their gross DoD retired pay, dollar for dollar, by the amount of their Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation pay; this is known as the VA waiver (or VA offset).
Some retirees who receive VA disability compensation may also receive CRDP or CRSC payments that make up for part or all of the DoD retired pay that they waive to receive VA disability pay.
The FY 2003 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) (P.L. 107-314, sec. 636) authorized CRSC for certain retirees with combat- or operations-related disabilities. The FY 2003 authority provided combat related special compensation (CRSC) to those retirees with qualifying disabilities rated at 60% or higher, and to those retirees with disabilities (regardless of disability level) associated with the award of a Purple Heart decoration.
The 2004 NDAA expanded CRSC to include all combat- or operations-related disabilities, effective January 1, 2004—regardless of disability level (10% to 100% ratings), effective January 1, 2004.
The 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) signed into law on January 28, 2008 expands eligibility of CRSC to anyone receiving military retired pay. This includes: Medical Chapter 61, Temporary Early Retirement Act (TERA) and Temporary Disabled Retirement List (TDRL) retirees. These new eligible components for CRSC went into effect January 1, 2008.
