So I have 80% CRSC approved effective 13JAN and it was turned in 6FEB, as of now I’m looking at 63 months of retro, 2700 was my high 3, based off that calculation did you high amount exceed mine? Just wondering if it will take 4 months like yours
Your monthly CRSC is likely to be the result of the following formula:

1. Active duty years x 2.5% = multiplier
Example, 3 years AD x 2.5% = 7.5%

2. High three average x multiplier = dollar amount of longevity portion of retirement pay.
Example: 2700 x 7.5% = 202.50 dollar amount of longevity portion of retirement pay

3. Any residual retired pay (left over) from the VA offset will reduce the monthly CRSC.
Example: 100 residual retired pay; 202.50 from above - 100 =102.50 CRSC.

4. The CRSC for CH 61 retirees generally is the lesser of
—dollar amount of longevity portion of retirement pay
OR
—dollar amount in the VA compensation tables that is the percentage approved by service for CRSC.

I talked to a DFAS VA retro payment representative finally last week, and was told my audit is "in its final stages" apparently. She was a real nice lady.

I’m looking at 69 months of retro and my audit started back on January 7th. Friday will be my 60 day mark and all I hear from DFAS is 90-120 days.
My high 3 was $1900. Maybe you'll get it quicker than me....good luck!!

I’m at 97 days waiting for my backpay. It’s from October 2014 till February of this year. Why does DFAS make you wait 2 hours and have no answers? Please someone help

SGT Howard,

Re: "Why does DFAS make you wait 2 hours and have no answers? Please someone help"

I assume part of the problem is getting through to DFAS. I usually starting calling DFAS at 0757 hours (Eastern) and continue to call until 0800 hours (Eastern) when DFAS is open for business. I am in the Central time zone, so the call is made at 0657 hours, my time. I have always gotten through by 0803 hours (Eastern).

What answers are you expecting? You did not mention them. If you are inquiring about when your retroactive payment will be generated, usually the best they can provide is a range such as 1-2 months. It is unlikely the people with whom you speak are accountants who might be processing your documents.

Good luck,
Ron

Hello,
@landjayc

1. Gross retired pay of 4968 reduced by 3437 VA compensation = 1531 residual retired pay
2. 100% CRSC = 3437
3. Payments each month:
VA = 3437
DFAS 3437 CRSC + 1531 residual retired pay = 4968

Note: Regular 20 year retirement; not CH 61

If your CRSC is not approved at 100%, you are probably better off remaining with CRDP. With CRSC @ less than 100%, your retired pay would still be reduced by 3437, but the CRSC would only replace the amount associated with the <100% rate (e.g., 60%) which mirrors the VA comp charts for that percentage.

Ask for VA Retro Pay when you first talk to someone, and they will tell you where you are in the process. I received my backpay after 5 months of waiting, and my case was sent through audit twice.
Seems like I’m headed to similar results as you. I was just airing out frustrations. The two hour wait time and letter about audit for SBP sent me over the edge. They are quick to audit and tell you that you owe them, but drag their feet when they owe you
