    My Final MEB on LAS

    Thanks for the info. As we know, CRDP and CRSC issues for disability retirees are more complex. To fully understand the entitlement, one has to have a grasp of multiple laws and how they impact the payments. Folks understandably reach for a simple answer, even when one is not available...
