    What kind of OER should I "expect" to get in the MEB year?

    I retired in 1991 and not once has anyone asked to see a copies of my NCOERs. I was usually asked for my college credentials. I suppose some DoD elements might ask to see the OER; I never considered that previously. Ron

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    Jason brought up an excellent point about CRSC, Combat Related Special Compensation. It does not have a 20 year requirement. CRSC requires an application. Approved CRSC replaces some or all of waived retired pay. It is not a bonus or an "on top of" payment. CH 61 retirees can receive...

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    Some examples I provided to you elsewhere that you might not have seen. Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP) allows military retirees to receive both military retired pay and Veterans Affairs (VA) compensation. This was prohibited until the CRDP program began on January 1, 2004. A CH...

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    Excellent advice about CRDP by Oddpedestrian. A CH 61 retirement is a DoD disability retirement. In my opinion, you will will throwing away thousands of dollars in CRDP if you choose to not complete your 20 years. A 20 year retirement for RA (example) is considered a regular retirement...

    If you are DOD TDRL/PDRL retired with less than 20 years of service please read.

    I agree with LTJG. However, if CRDP was implemented for those described in the preceding post, CRDP would restore the amount of the VA offset, but that restored amount could not exceed the dollar amount of the longevity portion of the retired pay. Additionally, the CRDP would be reduced by the...

    If you are DOD TDRL/PDRL retired with less than 20 years of service please read.

    I overlooked that the fact that regular retirees (non-disability) would actually be TERA retirees and eligible for CRDP if rated at 50% or more. In that instance of writing, I was thinking about regular retirees with less than a 50% VA rating. No one mentioned expanding CRDP to those with...

    If you are DOD TDRL/PDRL retired with less than 20 years of service please read.

    I am in favor of CH 61 retirees with less than 20 years receiving CRDP. However, H.R. 333 was introduced in the House 5 January 2017 (~16 months ago) and seems to be dying a slow death just as similar proposals mentioned above have done. Furthermore, if CRDP was expanded in that fashion...

    CRDP for "20 Good Years" reserve time but MEB while on active duty

    CRDP is the mechanism that allows concurrent receipt for those who qualify per current law. One can view CRDP as a restoration of waived retired pay and those who receive CRDP can see the amount of CRDP on page two of their DFAS RAS. Since CRDP is retired pay, it is included in the gross...

    Need Help Calculating Retired Pay (CRDP) *Please

    Returning to this section of your questions: "Doing the math, would you calculate 75%x4450? If so, would this mean I would receive $3375 DOD and $3660 VA (100% rating)? But since the VA is higher than my potential DOD pay, I would lose $285 (3660-3375) since pay can't exceed what my retirement...

    Need Help Calculating Retired Pay (CRDP) *Please

    I am not sure I follow your questions, but here is what I believe you are questioning. 1. The maximum DoD disability percentage payable is 75%. The computation would be Average of high three (36 mo) base x 0.75 = gross retired pay 2. A veteran having the circumstances you ID'ed earlier...

    Hello have a question that no one can seem to answer

    From DFAS: While on the TDRL, a physical examination is required at least once every 18 months. If you fail to report for your physical examination, your Branch of Service will remove you from the TDRL list and your retired pay will be suspended until your examination has been completed. If...

    DoD vs VA Pay Confusion

    Re: Never Get Less That would not be automatic (reverting to the disability option). You would have to file another election form with the VA UNLESS your VA rating went to zero. Otherwise, what he said is accurate in my opinion. CRSC is a separate matter. Approved CRSC would replace some...

    DoD vs VA Pay Confusion

    First, your selection of VA compensation and to waive retired pay dollar for dollar in the amount of VA compensation received, is usually the best choice for many. Unlike choices for those eligible for either CRDP or CRSC (i.e., those who have a choice), changing an election back to retired pay...

    CRSC and Rank consideration after PDRL and 100% T&P VA disability.

    CRSC requires an application to the service of the retiree. It is not automatic. Additionally, please note the encouraging remarks by chaplaincharlie at http://www.pebforum.com/threads/crsc-should-i-apply.29061/ In addition to the DFAS and Navy CRSC links, I have included the Army's CRSC web...

    23 Years Guard service, on ADOS orders with LOD's....medical retirement?

    Re: "He’s already at 80%, and over 20 years credible service, the years requirement and the >50% is a non-issue. He meets the requirements for concurrent retirement, the only question would be when. CRSC would entitle him to immediate, otherwise it starts at 60." Agreed (except for ">50%")...

    Re: "As an example, if someone collects $500 VA and their mil pay is $1500, you will receive $1500 a month but $500 of that is tax deferred. If your VA payment is higher than your mil pay, you will receive your va payment and all will be tax free. At age 60, you collect both concurrently. "...

    Re: Concurrent Receipt Laws While it is accurate to state that the DoD and VA ratings are often different (different criteria). Concurrent Receipt was not enacted to fix that difference, although it may have that effect. “Concurrent receipt” refers to the simultaneous receipt of two types of...

    1. The fact you were approved for IU, does not by itself qualify you for Concurrent Receipt (i.e.,receive both VA comp and retired pay). Yes, a VA rating (or IU) of 50% or more is one of the requirements for CRDP. Earlier, I provided a link to the DFAS CRDP page. You do not meet another...
