As I have explained to you in this thread at least 2x previously, you are not eligible for CRDP for the reasons I cited.

Your DOD disability retired pay will be reduced dollar for dollar in the amount of VA comp received which should be at least ~$3K @ 100% VA. Unless your average high three base pay is more than $6000 a month, all your ret pay will be waived. (6000 hi 3 x 50% = 3000 ret pay example).

An overview of CRDP:

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.

You must be eligible for retired pay to qualify for CRDP. If you were placed on a disability retirement, but would be eligible for military retired pay in the absence of the disability [see note 1], you may be entitled to receive CRDP.

Under these rules, you may be entitled to CRDP if…

  • you are a regular retiree with a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater.
  • you are a reserve retiree with 20 qualifying years of service, who has a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater and who has reached retirement age. (In most cases the retirement age for reservists is 60, but certain reserve retirees may be eligible before they turn 60. If you are a member of the Ready Reserve, your retirement age can be reduced below age 60 by three months for each 90 days of active service you have performed during a fiscal year.)
  • you are retired under Temporary Early Retirement Act (TERA) and have a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater.
  • you are a disability retiree who earned entitlement to retired pay under any provision of law other than solely by disability, and you have a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater. You might become eligible for CRDP at the time you would have become eligible for retired pay. [see note 1]
note 1: An example would be a reservist who receives a CH 61 retirement and upon reaching the age of 60 qualifies for a reserve retirement. Another example would be a regular Army solider who receives a CH 61 retirement, but also has 20 years AD (and VA rating of at least 50%); therefore, he/she could receive CRDP.

ok i guess the last one confuses me i am 90 percent threw va but i am rated unemployable so i get 100 percent threw va they just increase my army retirement from 20 percent to 50 percent would that not make me a disability retiree with 50 percent or more from va also indicates that i would be eligible for being iu (individual unemployable) from va see attached screen shot im sorry for keep on asking same questin im just not clear as ive talked to several vets that have already done this process and r receiving both thanks in advance.

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 reqitement for CRDP and that is being eligible for a DOD military retirement separate from the disability retired pay you will receive and waive/lose in the amount of VA compensation received. This applies to retirees having circumstances similar to yours.

2. VA compensation is not retired pay; it is compensation paid by the VA. Additionally, VA comp is not a pension.

3. Since you do not qualify for a military retirement separate from CH 61, your case does not meet the requirements for Concurrent Receipt (CRDP). I am speaking of only your specific case while outlining CRDP requirements. I listed other senarios in another post in this thread.

4. You are not eligible for CRDP. If you have combat related disabilities, you might visit the DFAS site for CRSC.

5. Recommend you visit with your VSO if you have additional questions.

Good luck,
Ron

Any Jarheads going through the process? I have been standing by to stand by since Oct 2016 with no progress. Any ideas on how long for the Corps to do its thing?
