    • I know what you mean. It took me about three years to go from 40% to 90% and then another year to hit 100% (backdated to original EED from five years earlier). The 90% hurdle is just probably the toughest for most veterans. It is pretty bad when the VA fails to read records properly (even typed ones) and causes all sorts of unnecessary anxiety and stress in the process. Despite still having heart issues, I have not won SC yet. The docs pulled me off of one heart medication that was actually making the problem worse and it put me into the 0% category. However, I do have two other claims that I know can be increased if I filed now. One would go from 30% to 40% and the other from 30% to 50%. I talk with my wife periodically about filing for all three, but she doesn't want me to rock the boat. She told me to wait until I retire.
    • Hey Buck52 Do you have the contact information for the manger at the RPC?  
    • great information. thanks!
    • Vync: I'm trying to get to the 100% mark but I'm learning to be more patient that it will eventually come. I know you fought your heart issues for some time and they really lowballed me on that...the hand written notes have hurt not helped me much...my PCP is nice but he would never translate the records for me.... Take Care, Rootbeer22
    • Here's a little history on ILP's beginnings so you can better understand how this works-or how it's supposed to work. https://asknod.org/2016/07/27/cavc-ilp-16-2098-this-ilps-for-you/ I hope this helps some of you to get there. Win or Die. Never give up. That's how I prevailed. Five years is nothing in VA time. Remember that.

Dfas And Va Retro Pay

11 posts in this topic

Ok I went from 30% to 80% was informed this in sept 2012 this dates back to the effective date of dec 2010. so basically 20 months of retro pay i assume i know I know what assuming does. But if its 20 months and my retired pay is 1,600.00 and my crdp is 1,600.00 a month I have got my first payment.

Is it 1600.00 for the 20 months? how is it determined what dfas pays and va pays for retro? I got the retro from dfas 8K then 25% taxes so I got 6K in my account then it goes to VA for audit am I thinking rith that VA should be paying 24,000.00 retro or is there some weird math?

1,600.00 X 20 Months = 32,000.00 - 8,000.00 from dfas = 24,000.00 owed ??????

Unfortunately, it does not work that way.

You wont be collecting "2012" disability pay for 2010. You will be getting 2010 pay in 2012..and no interest.

I dont know about retirement, and I dont know about CRDP, but I do know the VA pays no interest and you only get paid what you should have gotten last year, or the year before, minus what they already paid you. If you owe them money for retirement or CDRP, then that will be deducted also.

It sounds liike the 30% you have already been paid for, will also be deducted.

I believe you are trying to equate DFAS language and principles directly with VA language and principles. Doesn't always work.

As for my crdp is 1,600.00 a month ... That 1600/CRDP is the amount of your military retirement pay that will be "returned" to you each month under the Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP) program.

Now, the VA (actually, I think the easier part here) ...

Your retroactive compensation from the VA should be (using your stated 20 months, effective from 10/2010. When figuring the rate, don't forget spouse & dependents):

The 80% rate from the rate table dated 12-1-2009 x 12 months minus the amount of VA compensation you had received

plus The 80% rate from the rate table dated 12-1-2011 x 8 months minus the amount of VA compensation you had received.

As there was no COLA for CY 2011, the rate table dated 12-1-2009 remained valid for 2011.

I don't want to put a curse on myself but if I win my CUE I will get 100% at the 1971 rate forward to August 30, 2001 when I got 100% rate from the VA. I don't even know what the rate was in 1971, but I will take it if I get lucky. I think 100% in 1971 was probably $1200 bucks or less. This is a clear win for the VA either way it turns out because I lose 30 years of potential interest.

With CRDP, you get both so you don't have to worry about the VA offset cutting into your retro. DFAS should audit your account to make sure you have no debts to the government (I do: severance repayment). If you don't you should receive your VA retro without a hitch.
