    Welcome to my friends list, Semper FI Master Sgt of Marines.
  4. Dennis: if you waived MC retirement because the VA comp was higher, you should now elligable for both the VA comp and the MC retirement (crdp) if you are rated 100% by the schedule or due to IU. The crdp will most likely be taxable. You are also elligable for the CRSC as of 01-01-2008 if you are currently entitled to retired pay for any reason OTHER than early reserve retirement for disabilities not incurred in the line of duty. This as of the CRSC form DD 2860 dated APR 2008. Suggest you contact DFAS regarding reinstatement of your military retirement, then reapply for the CRSC using the latest form. I have heard of several cases where crsc claims were denied due to using an older form. Let me know what happens.

    oldtop,

    how have you been. I told you I got my back pay of 381.00 and a monthly increase of 64.00 ************* says there is a screw up on the program. Do you know what is going on with crdp and crsc? I can't figure this out,and can't get any answers.

    oldtop,

    well I just talked with someone with the CRSC. I got a whopping 64.00 extra a month. I talked with one of my friends from MOPH ,he was with Echo 2/1 also he is 100% disabled. He qualified for the CRSC. He was not very happy with the ammount. I laughed my ass off at him because he was counting on more money so he could by property down in Florida. At least I know better than not putting all my eggs in the same basket.

    Check ************* benifits,they say CRDP is being restored for military retirees with backpay from January 2005. It occurs in 2 steps Nov. 3 paychecks for IU will reflect full CRDP so they in effect,will begin drawing full Military retirement again on top of the VA compensation. Later (unknown when).The IU retireees will get a lump sum payment for full CRDP back through Jan 2005.

    Also The Military Officers Assoc. Of America it has found a glitch in the CRSC expansion law.It impacts some enlisted people with less than 14 yrs of service who have high overall disability awards but low rated combat related disabilities. They will not be eligible for CRSC even though they currently forefit any service earned retired pay under the VA disiblity offset. MOAA has briefed Congressional Committees on a proposed fix.
