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
