1. I have received word PDIR will be 70% PDRL.
2. I have received my VA Ratings and am 100% P&T, currently receiving $3545.67
3. I have 23 years total service, Reservist with 5610 points = 15.58 years
4. 03E current base pay is $7,195
5. Spouse w/ 2 Children (4 & 8)

-I cannot get any answers on what payment I will receive from the Air Force when I am medically retired, if any
-Will I receive any medical retirement payments from the Air Force since I did not do a full 20 "good years" and I am a reservist? I have 15.58 good years
-I do already receive my VA disability monthly payments from the VA. Which I waive when I perform military duty as a reservist. Will the Air Force require me to waive those payments?

Retired pay base is your average of your highest three years of base pay.

O3E would be expected to be about 7300ish so 70% of that is $5110.00, subtract C&P award and you get the residual after taxes.

You’ll know exactly what you get when they calculated final pay. This is an estimate.

5110-3565=1545 taxes should be 15% or so, estimate $1313 from DoD and you keep your tax free C&P award every month.

[From info provided in discussion via PM]

Based on the info you provided, the following would apply:

I do not know your active duty equivalent. (5610/360) = 15.58 Active Duty equivalent. This may or may not be correct. Recommend you find out from your sources. Note: high three was stated as 7195.

1. (7195 x 0.70 ) = 5036.50 disability retirement pay
2. VA compensation 100% spouse & 2 children u/ 18 = ($3,352.41 + 84.69) = 3437.10
3. (5036.50 - 3437.10) = 1599.40 residual retired pay
4. (15.58 AD x 0.025) = 38.95 longevity multiplier
5. (7195 x 0.3895) = 2802.95 longevity portion of retired pay
6. (2802.95 - 1599.40 residual ) = 1203.55 maximum amount of CRSC

COMMENTS (based on info you provided).
a. Without CRSC = 1599.40 residual retired pay paid by DFAS
b. With CRSC = 1203.55 (maximum CRSC ) + 1599.40 residual retired pay = 2802.95
c. VA comp, both cases: 3437.10

Your approved rate of CRSC (if applicable) is unknown. Your active duty equivalent should be provided by you.
