Thanks Ron. That makes a lot more sense, now that I understand how years of service is calculated based on reservist’s retirement points. I’m I correct to infer that an increase in CRSC % will not result in an any additional award since CRSC at 90% could pay up to ~1833 but in my case is limited to ~642 based on the longevity retirement portion?The following is conjecture with several missing elements.

Re: “my 1st CRSC statement on DFAS 1MAY2019 is $267.13”

Inference: 267.13 + 376 is a certain percentage of 4904, high three base pay average

1. 643.13/4904 = 13.11%

2. 13.11/2.5 = 5.24 years active duty

3. 5.24 AD x 0.025 = 13.1 multiplier

4. 4904 x 0.131 = 642.42 longevity portion of retirement pay

5. 642.42 minus 376 residual retired pay = 266.42 CRSC

6. DFAS would pay 266.42 CRSC (within $1 of DFAS figure) plus 376 residual retired pay = 642.42 TOTAL

Earlier computation using 14.75 as AD.

A. 3433/0.70 = ~4904 high three

B. 3433 gross retired pay minus 3057 VA compensation = 376 residual retired pay

C. 14.75 AD years x 0.25 = 36.88% multiplier

D. 4904 x 0.3688 = ~1809 dollar amount of longevity portion of retirement pay

E. CRSC @ 90% = ~1833

F. 1809 is the ceiling for your CRSC

G. 1809 minus 376 residual retired pay amount = 1433 CRSC payable

H. Amount received from DFAS each month: 1433 + 376 = 1809
