I was approved for CRSC today at 70%. I was medically retired in February of this year. I’m rated at 70% from army and 80% VA. All my army pay is waived for the VA pay. I served 8 years 3 months as a SSG. I have 4 children under 18. My monthly payment from the VA is 2082. How do i calculate the CRSC pay? Thank you so much !

You will receive the lesser (lower) amount of
—dollar amount of the longevity portion of retirement pay
or
—dollar amount for the approved CRSC percentage using the VA compensation tables

For estimate:
1. Provide gross retired pay on DFAS RAS or average high three for retirement. Indicate which you are providing.
2. You have already provided the other data needed.

I’m not sure which one I am suppose to give. I actually get 2064 from the VA and 2082 from the army. Since it’s waived for the VA pay I get paid monthly from the army which is $18. The difference between 2082-2064=8.

My RAS says my gross pay is 2082 a month. But I don’t get that anymore because I get 80% from the VA which is 2064 a month. Does that help?

Assuming 2082 is the gross (before waiver or deductions) on your DFAS RAS, The following applies:

1. 2082 gross retired pay minus 2064 VA = 18 residual retired pay
2. 2082/0.70 = 2974.29 average high three
3. 8.25 active duty years x 0.025 = 20.62%
4. 2974.29 x 0.2062 = 613.30 dollar amount of longevity portion of retirement pay

Your CRSC based on info you provided = 613.30

Edited to add:
Sorry...I forgot the residual retired pay
613.30 minus 18 = 595.30 CRSC plus 18 paid by DFAS each month.
