You are welcome; it is a complex and confusing program in my opinion.thank you RON
CRDP and CRSC for regular retirements (20 year AD) are straightforward. The laws we discussed have additional factors/limitations that apply to disability retirees. Those whose "other retirement eligibility" is for service in the reserves have the age requirement (~60).
The most complex computations are for the Career Status Bonus (CSB)/REDUX program.
REDUX: Members who entered the service after July 31, 1986 are given a choice of two retirement plans when they reach their 15th year of active service:
--High-3 Year Average
--Career Status Bonus (CSB)/REDUX
Military members who elect CSB/REDUX are eligible to receive a $30,000 bonus when they reach their 15th year of active service, but will also have their retired pay calculated at a reduced rate.
Here are some remarks I initially posted (on another board) circa 2013 and updated in 2017: Waiver of Retired Pay in Order to Receive VA Compensation <----LINK
