Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) officials have announced that DFAS has completed processing the backlog of more than 9,000 Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) retroactive payments that had been approved for more than 60 days. The backlog was created in June 2003 and January 2004 when legislation was passed that changed entitlements and required additional policy and coordination between the military services, the Department of Veterans Affairs and DFAS. CRSC applications will normally be paid within 60 days of military service approval. Military retirees whose applications have been approved, but who have not been paid for more than 60 days since the approval, may call (800) 472-7098 between 8 - 4:30 EST. Officials emphasize that only those retired members whose eligibility have been verified and whose payments are overdue should use this number.
