High three: 3450
VA: 100% (type & number of dependents missing)—assume single rate
AD: 11 yrs 8 months
Your CRSC based on the info you provided is $879.36
- 3450 x 0.70 = 2415 retired pay, all waived due to ~3000 VA comp
- 11.667 yrs x 0.025 = 29.17multiplier
- 3450 x 0.2917 = 1006.37 longevity portion of retirement pay
- CRSC @ 50%, no deps = $879.36
- Number 4 is less than number 3, CRSC= 879.36 (no dependents)
All the retired pay is already waived using the without dependents rate. So...it does not cause any change in the retired pay.Thank you very much!!! I do have 3 dependents, change it very much?
Thank You!! Yes it Active Duty time, and it is one spouse and 2 children, thank you for all of your help!!All the retired pay is already waived using the without dependents rate. So...it does not cause any change in the retired pay.
It does change the amount of CRSC @ 50%.
Since I still do not know the categories of dependents, I cannot tell you the rate.
You will receive the lesser of
—1006.37 longevity portion of retirement pay
—50% rate with applicable number of dependents by category shown in the VA compensation tables of DECEMBER 2018.
See Veterans Compensation Benefits Rate Tables - Effective 12/1/18 - Compensation <—-LINK
Note: The 11 years & 8 months was inferred to be active duty time. If it is not AD time, that changes the computation.
IF you have a regular (20 year active duty) retirementRon,

$5300 High three
100% VA w/ 100% CRSC
Spouse w/ 2 dependents under 18
Trying to figure out what I'll get for a monthly check. Do I take the CRSC or CDRP?
Thanks in advance!
That is not a dumb question...I've read every reply on here and I'm still confused. I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but is CRSC additional to VA disability pay?
I am medically retired Army (90%), 100% VA, and I just received approval for 100% CRSC. I understand the amount is different for everyone. I get approximately $3400 a month from the VA, so will I receive CRSC in addition to that?
I appreciate your help.
IF you have a regular (20 year active duty) retirement
both VA and CRSC are 100%
You would be better off taking CRSC since it is non-taxable
Regular retirement @ precisely 20 year AD:
5300 high three x 0.50 = 2650 retired pay
CRDP: You receive 2650 gross, all taxable
CRSC: You receive 2650 gross, all nontaxable
VA: Both cases...3000+
Again, with a regular retirement and the CRSC rate is approved at a percentage less than the VA rate, CRDP would be the best choice since CRSC would not replace all the waived retired pay in this instance.
If you are going to receive a CH 61 retirement, there are certain limitations not discussed above.
The following is based on the info you provided.Ron,
Thanks for teh quick reply. So under Regular retirement i could recieve:
$2650 Retire Pay Tax
$2650 CRSC Non Tax
$3100 VA Benefits
Or do I only recieve CRSC & VA if rated 100% from both?
The DOD CRSC percentages mirrors the rates in the VA compensation tables, although not every VA approved disability ends up as part of CRSC. The service determines what is approved as combat related for CRSC and an application is required. It is my understanding that the DOD combines disabilities in the same manner as the VA.I’m trying to figure out how Army determines CRSC percentage? My DQ is 70% and a few others at 10s and 20s. Is it added the way VA does their math? Also could use help calculating crsc?

Thanks in advance!
1. 5100 high three
2. 21.5 years active duty x 2.5% = 53.75 multiplier
3. Non-Disability retirees (REDUX) will have their percent multiplier reduced by:
--1 percent for each full year of creditable service less than 30, and
--1/12th of 1 percent for each full month of creditable service less than a full year.
3. 30 years minus 21.5 years = 8.5 (8 yrs 6 mo)
4. Multiplier 53.75 minus 8.5 (8 years and 6/12ths) = 45.25% REDUX multiplier
5. 5100 x 0.4525 = 2307.75 REDUX RETIRED PAY using information furnished, some of which was "believe." In any case, the rate I computed is close to the rate you are being paid.
Since you have a active duty retirement, but with REDUX and a VA rating of 50% or more, your retired pay is likely ALL CRDP now and is shown as CRDP on page two of your DFAS RAS as a comment. The gross retired pay on page one includes CRDP.
As a REDUX retiree, your CRDP is computed using the REDUX formula.
--As a REDUX retiree will be the lesser of the longevity portion of your retired pay (using REDUX formula)
--The dollar amount associated with 100% CRSC with the number of dependents you showed, using the VA compensation charts.
Your CRSC will be the longevity retirement (REDUX formula) amount since it is the lesser.
In other words, your CRSC should be the same amount as your CRDP except it is non-taxable.
If you wish, I can provide a link to another site where a few years ago I wrote about filing amended tax returns for years having retroactive CRSC authorization. DFAS will not go back to 2018 and change your CRDP TO CRSC in this case.
I inserted numbers to your paragraphs for reference purposes. Additionally, you do not mention category of retirement or approved CRSC percentage.Ron,
[1.] I finally got my CRSC this month. It’s was $1453 per month. They are saying another 90-120 days before I get back pay check all the way from July 18.
[2.]Also my va 100% w two dependents went from $3650 last month to $3128 this month over $500 short. Do you know why this happened? Thanks for your knowledge.
