Sometimes 100% CRSC is not enough to replace ALL waived retired pay—regular retirement

Accepting CRSC means waiving retired pay dollar for dollar in the FULL amount of VA Compensation. That includes SMC-K , SMC-S , and other SMCs.

Sometimes the CRSC approval DOES NOT include the SMC. I saw such a case last week and some others a few years ago.

Case last week: Although he had 100% CRSC approved, the approval did not include his two SMCs. He would have lost $400 a month by choosing CRSC over CRDP.

Those ineligible for CRDP should ignore this post.
