    Is there ever a time where CRPD is not worth it?

    I agree. CRDP restores waived longevity retired pay for all service-connected disabilities. Note: In the case of regular retirements, this CRDP restoration is visible only by a remark on page two of the DFAS RAS. CRSC replaces waived retired pay for only combat related disabilities. I have...

    Is there ever a time where CRPD is not worth it?

    I think you are speaking about CRDP, not CRPD. You can still receive the 70% multiplier when you apply for RC retirement. The waiver/reduction of retired pay in the amount of VA comp received might leave residual retired pay. The combination of residual retired pay PLUS CRDP (which is a...
