Recent info from DFAS:
Posted yesterday: "Just had the most pleasant conversation with someone from DFAS I think I've ever had. The CRSC website says that you should receive retro pay anywhere from 30-60 days from receipt of your first CRSC payment. It's actually 90-120 days from first payment and those are calendar days not business days."
Opinion: I think it is a moving target and the volume of CRSC approvals drives the time required to process payments for retro CRSC. One to three months is common.
Welcome to the PEB Forum!
Outstanding news, indeed; congratulations! Take care and enjoy!
Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer!"
Thank you it was available. Now how do I calculate crsc at 50%.Justpaint89,
I infer the letter you are waiting for is the CRSC decision. If your husband was in the Army,
a copy of the decision can be downloaded from the HRC web page.
2. "My Records"
3. Login with DS password
4. Click "Reserve/Retiree/Veteran
5. Click "Documents"
6. Click on the CRSC decision you want to view/copy (all should be available)
I do not know if the other services have a similar option.
The document at the following link has examples of what might be approved for CRSC:
DFAS produces a separate statement for CRSC; it is not on the regular RAS on MyPay. The final DFAS update for each month is around the 21st. If approved for CRSC, the CRSC statement would appear not later than ~21st.
In 2011, the Navy stated: “The CRSC board only considers VA rated service connected disabilities. Slips, trips, and falls, lifting heavy objects, as well as physical training, are not combat-related disabilities. The fact that a veteran incurred a disability during a period of war or simulated war; or in an area of armed or simulated conflict, or while participating in combat or simulated combat operations; is not sufficient to support a combat-related determination.” This stands to reason since CRSC replaces some of all of Retired Pay waived/lost due to receipt of VA compensation for combat-related disabilities.
Your info:so I was just approved for my crsc at 90%
Va 100% with wife and 4 children
and 8 years in the Army can someone help me with some kind of calculations Please
Information needed for Chapter 61 disability retirement CRSC estimate (the information should be provided in an open forum):Thank you it was available. Now how do I calculate crsc at 50%.
Estimate.I am still confused with how to get crsc calculation. Here’s the info.
High 3: 3563.58
10yrs 4 months
Wife and two children
So does the estimated 919.40 get deducted from the va compensation or added to it. That’s what also confuses me. I currently receive 2115 a month for va disability. How does the crsc figure in. Will it lower my monthly. Sorry for all the questions.Estimate.
1. High 3, 3563.58 x 30% DoD = 1069.06 retired pay
2. All retired pay is waived due to receipt of VA compensation that is >= retired pay
3. 10.33 yrs AD x 2.5% = 25.8% multiplier
4. 3563.58 x 25.8 = 919.40 longevity portion of retired pay
5. 50% CRSC, spouse and 2 children = 1039.41 (current tables on this date)
6. Amount at item 4 is less than amount at item 5 = CRSC 919.40
Based on the information you provided, your CRSC will be about 919.40. Earlier periods would be slightly less.
Not everyone receives retroactive payment of CRSC, but if your approval shows a retroactive effective date and you waived retired pay for the retro period, you should receive a retroactive payment.
