REDUX RETIREMENTHigh 3 $4640.93 , spouse and 1 child.
24 yrs active duty (Retired)
VA 100% $3460 with additional 70%
Claiming 70% for crsc
Special comp of $108.25
1. It appears that you are receiving CRDP (rated =>50% by VA, 20+ years of AD)
2. I infer your REDUX payment is $2506 (which is likely all CRDP...see page 2 of your DFAS RAS)
3. With CRSC, your retired pay would reduced by the amount of VA compensation, which based on the info you provided = zero retired pay remaining
4. CRSC @ 70% with spouse and 1 child = $1,609.71
5. If my inferences are correct, if you continue with CRDP you will receive $2506 each month. If you change to CRSC, you will receive $1609.71 each month @70%.
CRDP seems to be the best option for you. About $900 more than the CRSC amount.
Thank you Ron, you made it very clear.SGTTango,
Revisiting your REDUX/CRSC case, a summary:
1. With CRDP: You receive VA 100% $3460 + SMC-K and REDUX payment of $2506 (includes CRDP) for a total of $5966 or more (depends on whether SMC-K was included in the 3460)
2. With CRSC: You receive VA 100% $3460 + SMC-K and CRSC of $1,609.71 for a total of 5069.71 or more (depends on whether SMC-K was included in the 3460)
3. CRDP appears to be your best choice based on available info.
