Hello,

Estimate.

1. 2409.79 x 0.40 = 963.92 retired pay
2. Retired pay reduced to zero by amount of VA comp
3. 5.83 active duty years x 0.025 = 14.58% longevity multiplier
4. 2409.79 x 0.1458 = 351.35 longevity portion of retired pay and CRSC

CRSC cannot exceed the longevity portion of retired pay.

Awesome! Thank you!

Oddly enough, just a few minutes ago while I was going through some paperwork, I just found a document from DFAS calculating my retirement pay. It did it using two different methods method A and B. Method A gave the $963 figure and B gave $351. So I'm just guessing now, is CRSC just method B?

Again thank you for working that out.

Hello,

That is a coincidence.

Basically, for a CH 61 retiree with less than 20 years AD, they receive CRSC that is the LESSER of
--The amount associated with the percentage approved by their service. In you case that is 60% and the VA comp tables are used to determine the amount
OR
--the dollar amount of the longevity portion of retired pay.

In your case, the dollar amount of the longevity is much less than the 60% found in the VA comp tables. That is the reason for the amount cited.

Good luck,
Ron

I guess one could say it is method B, but not always...as I explained.

I was not thinking in terms of method A or B when I determined the amount.

I did use "method A" to determine how much retired pay was waived. (But did not give a thought to the term "method A".
