    Traditional Guard Medical Retirement

    Yes, and in no way was I suggesting otherwise. In addition to the benefits of a DOD retirement, if there is residual retired pay after the required VA offset (if VA comp is involved), the retiree keeps it. However, the combination of residual retired pay plus CRSC cannot exceed the dollar...

    Traditional Guard Medical Retirement

    LTC, I was not in the Guard nor do I have a medical background. However, some thoughts... Per the VA, ratings are based on: The evidence you give us (like a doctor’s report or medical test results), and The results of your VA claim (C&P) exam (if we determine you need this exam), and Other...

    Former Active 11B, current USAR looking at MEB, need help please

    Good answer immediately preceding mine. If you receive a disability retirement and you are rated 100% by the VA, you will waive/lose retired pay dollar for dollar in the amount of VA compensation received. In many cases, that waiver results in zero retired pay. Some retirees qualify for...

    100

    I am sorry to hear of the multiple disabilities. That does not change the info provided above. I am not a rater. I have been rated both 100% without being permanent and later 100% Permanent and Total. You might consider visiting with a VSO regarding this matter. Ron

    100

    Perhaps the rater did not consider the disability permanent based on the evidence available. Permanent total disability. Permanence of total disability will be taken to exist when such impairment is reasonably certain to continue throughout the life of the disabled person. The permanent loss or...

    I am sorry to read of your problems with the VA. The letters oddpedestrian referred to are not the letters you would have received in the mail. To my knowledge, those letters are not available on eBenefits, but I have not looked in a long time. eBenefits does have letters that can be...

    CRDP/CRSC open season please help

    Hello Steve-O, I took the figures you provided and could not make them fit what DFAS is telling you about your CRDP. That does not necessarily mean the DFAS CRDP is in error; it is more likely that some of the figures reported on this board are imprecise, which is understandable considering...

    CRDP/CRSC open season please help

    CRSC is never more than CRDP. However, CRSC can be less than CRDP. If your retired pay is already nontaxable, there is no reason to change except possible former spouse considerations. Ron

    CRDP/CRSC open season please help

    Steve, You are comparing the figures that DFAS provided (which include known data) and figures computed using information that is either inferred or provided to the best of your ability. I agree with gsfowler's assessment of, "...your total pay will remain the same, just that some will be CRSC...

    Upon an initial award, the VA electronically advises the DFAS of the waiver being in place. In most instances, the VA never sends a paper copy of the election to DFAS, unless requested by DFAS. Having seen a dozen or so similar cases, the VA always requested the election form be sent to them...

    JA1979, General. This problem used to be common, but in recent years it does not appear as often. CRSC replaces some or all of waived retired pay. No waiver; no CRSC. As a retiree, you would not have received VA compensation without the waiver of retired pay in order to receive the VA...

    Question about 100% VA disability with SMC-S

    I have not looked at eBenefits in quite a while, but I believe one of the letters that can be downloaded will state whether you are P&T. If not there, another document in the same area summarizes your benefits and a statement that you are P&T is within, if applicable. Sorry, I have rarely...

    Re: "... September of 2017. IDES found me unfit, and the VA rated my referring condition at 100%.
