If you want an estimate of your CRSC entitlement...

The information associated with all of the six numbered items below is needed. Incomplete answers will preclude an accurate estimate. Each numbered item below is a factor in the CRSC calculation.

1. High three base pay average for retirement or your current DoD disability retirement gross found on page one of the DFAS RAS.

2. DoD disability retirement percentage.

3. Years and months of active duty

Note: The creditable years of service (active duty equivalent) for a reserve calculation is determined by the sum of accumulated reserve points divided by 360.

4. VA compensation:

-- percentage

and

--amount

plus

--identify dependents by category and number

and

---Any SMCs awarded and amount(s)

5. Approved or expected combat related disability percentage (application was required).

6. Do you qualify for another type retirement besides CH 61 disability?

Note: All the info listed above is necessary Often, the reply omits much of the needed info, precluding an accurate computation.

Hello,RonG thank you for your time and help. I am curious if you can provide some help.

E-6 with 14 years

Medically retired with 30% Army. $1308

100% P & T with the VA. $3450

80% CRSC. $

Any idea if you can check on these numbers.

1. 1308 gross retired pay/0.30 = 4360 high three

2. 14 years active duty x 0.025 = 35% This was likely the basis for your retired pay (higher than 30%)

3. 3737.14 x 0.35 = 1308 longevity portion of retired pay Note: all retired pay offset by amount of VA compensation

4. 84.69 + 3,352.41 =

5. 80% CRSC: 1,867.69 + 67 = 1934.69

6. CRSC for CH 61 cannot exceed longevity portion of retired pay.

Ron

Sorry I missed your message yesterday.

If you want an estimate of your CRSC entitlement...

The information associated with all of the six numbered items below is needed. Incomplete answers will preclude an accurate estimate. Each numbered item below is a factor in the CRSC calculation.

1. High three base pay average for retirement or your current DoD disability retirement gross found on page one of the DFAS RAS.The gross retired pay from your DFAS RAS is preferred since it presents a gross high three that include any COLA increases. Please indicate whether you are providing the high three average or the retirement gross found on the DFAS RAS. The high-36 method is the average of the highest 36 months of basic pay divided by 36. This is generally the last 3 years of service and is sometimes called high-3.EXAMPLE: High three average $3333(or alternative: Gross Retired Pay on DFAS RAS $xxxx.xx)

gross pay from eras is 1306, with 206 taxable income

2. DoD disability retirement percentage.EXAMPLE: 50% DoD

DOD retirement 30%

3. Years and months of active dutyEXAMPLE: 11 years and 3 months

Note: The creditable years of service (active duty equivalent) for a reserve calculation is determined by the sum of accumulated reserve points divided by 360.

Total active service 14 years 2 months

4. VA compensation:

-- percentage

and

--amount

plus

--identify dependents by category and numberEXAMPLE: 60% VA Compensation, $1600, Spouse and 6 children under 18

and

---Any SMCs awarded and amount(s)

Rated 100% T&P ($3545)

- married with two children

5. Approved or expected combat related disability percentage (application was required).EXAMPLE: 70% CRSC approved

80% CRSC rated

6. Do you qualify for another type retirement besides CH 61 disability?EXAMPLE: Yes, Reserve Retirement

No

Note: All the info listed above is necessary Often, the reply omits much of the needed info, precluding an accurate computation.

A. 1306/0.3542 (see D) = 3687.18 high three

B. All retired pay is offset by the amount of VA comp

C. 14.166 AD x 0.025 = 35.42% multiplier for longevity (this is higher than the 30%)

Dod disability- 100%

One spouse (one on the way)

100% CRSC

100% va

Not sure what else you need.

Email me - [email protected] if you could. Maybe I’m not reading correctly.

Hello Aaron,Dod disability- 100%

One spouse (one on the way)

100% CRSC

100% va

Not sure what else you need.

Aaron

Here is an estimate based on incomplete info. I suppose it could be considered a place holder.

Hey my numbers are

100% va + smc r

100% CRSC

E5 9 years meb retired

2216 was my last les statement

and

Dod disability- 100%

One spouse (one on the way)

100% CRSC

100% va

Not sure what else you need. [note: The info needed was provided to you in this thread and via email.]

--------------------------------

1. The current rate for an E5 over 8 for pay is 3,207.00 (which would not be your high three). You said 2216 is on your LES; retirees receive a RAS. Assuming 2216 is your gross retired pay, 2216/0.75 DoD multiplier = 2954.67 high three average base pay.

2. Your retired pay is reduced by the amount of VA compensation received = zero retired pay remaining.

3. You said, "E5 9 years." I assume you have 9 years active duty.

4. 9 x 2.5% = 22.5% longevity multiplier

5. Guess high three 3000 x 0.225 =

6.
