My CRSC was approved on 08 April and I've heard nothing from DFAS about payment at all, I'm going to call.

I suspect you will receive your first payment on 31 May 2019 since 1 June is on a weekend.

Often a document is prepared on a certain date, but it does not actually leave that location until several days later.

Good luck,
Ron

Hello,

Your experience is common in my opinion.

As a 20-year AD retiree, I experienced several VA and CRSC increases (after reconsiderations) over the years and many involved retroactive payments. I never received an interim report or contact from DFAS during the period preceding payment. However, it would have been nice if I had been informed of what was being done. I don’t think that action is part of the DFAS protocol for CRSC processing.

You are correct about the posting of the CRSC statements this week.

Update.....

Called DFAS on the same day I posted. My payment is schedule for 01 June, and she said I couldn't go off of mypay because it's one of the last systems to reflect. She said my audit for back pay would take longer (Which I knew) and that it wouldn't reflect on mypay until about the time the audit finished. What a long road, thanks to the @pebforum and all of the input from everyone about the process. I can say that this was my last significant experience with my retirement process and now that it's done I feel a million times better. Good luck to everyone, I'm going to stay around to help as much as I can.

Congratulations...

You will be paid on the 31st of May rather than 1 June since the 1st is on Saturday.

A very delayed up-date. CRSC approved 4/9/2019. On 5/1 and 6/1 and for the future I am receiving 3 direct deposits. #1 from the VA for my disabilty rating of 20%. # 2 from DFAS for my VA reduced retirement pay. #3 from DFAS for my CRSC pay. $ wise almost back to normal. No retro pay received yet. Note - CRSC pay is excempt from court orders, e.g. divorce orders.

[excerpt] No retro pay received yet. Note - CRSC pay is excempt from court orders, e.g. divorce orders.
Correct, however...

“CRSC is not retired pay, and it is not subject to the provisions of 10 U.S. Code § 1408 relating to payment of retired or retainer pay in compliance with court orders.” DOD Financial Management Regulation, Volume 7B, Chapter 63, Section 630101.C.1. CRSC may be garnished for garnishment for child support or alimony, however.
Ref: Section 630101.C.2.

Thanks to this forum for some good info while my CRSC was processed. Took 8 months - not that unusual from what I have read in the forum. What was unusual is I was first told by Air Force process was 30 business days. Later e-mail and phone queries kept changing that to 2 months, then 3, then 6, then "we are swamped" so I just waited. I agree there should be some way to check in MyPay for status without a lengthy phone call to DFAS or service component. From this thread I now realize I have some back pay coming for CRSC. My VA back pay ("recomputation") took several months and showed up unannounced in my bank account. A nice surprise, but again, would have been nice to know the details. I later got a hardcopy VA letter explaining the back pay.

We have very similar timelines. CRSC Approval letter received 4/21/2019, first payment 5/31/10 and second payment received on 7/1/19. Still no word on my Retro pay as of today(7/15/19) just that it's under audit. My CRSC Statement on mypay hasn't been updated since my first CRSC payment on 5/31.

Thank you. You saved me from a long DFAS on hold phone call about my retro not yet received pay. I would get the same answer as yours - "under audit."

Keep me updated! From my understanding it will just show up in your account with no help from my pay statements. Doesn’t necessarily get deposited on the CRSC pay date

Retroactive payments of CRSC are normally paid out of cycle . In other words, DFAS generates retro payments throughout a particular processing month.
