Crdp Sections Ammended Letter; So Whats Funny?



  • HadIt.com Elder

Just got a new DFAS Letter, reads "basically" like this

Public law 107-314, section .. amended which established the crsc/crdp..section sections,sections...

CRDP entitlement have been amended so that retired military members who have previously recieved or are currently recieving CRSC and/or CRDP can now have their entilements recalculated based on retroactive ratings awarded by the DVA. Because of these ammendments we are performing a review of all potential accounts including yours. Your account has been reviewed for the period of .......2004 through ......2007.

This review revealed that the DFAS part of your CRDP and/or CRSC entitlements have been paid correctly to date.

However you may be due additional compensation from the DVA. All previous CRDP and CRSC entitlement payments have come from DFAS. DFAS has provided information to the DVA to enable them to determine if any additional entitlements are due. In most cases .....DVA will be able to process the info within 30 days. Specific referrals may take longer based on unique circumstances.....questions call 18008271000...further questions contact DFAS mil retirement pay at address or call 18773274457 m-f, 8AM to 430 PM, eastern time. or fax toll free.....

Funny part, with new rating, I just got first CRDP and VA check last month. Thought I had it figured out, now DFAS says this and refer me to DVA.

My question once again, will I get CRDP and/or VA retro paid back to '06? from who or whom? Time and patience will tell, eh.cg rides on!

I think that you can request a break down of how it was computed month by month.

Yes, good idea, I will enjoy seeing the "numbers" with a couple cups of coffee and a calculator myself. Think I'll request data from both agencies. The equations could turn into family math night here. Will update, cg

I got the same letter from DFAS right before I got my retro payment from the VA. You will probably get your retro payment first of November and then the explanation of payment letter a few days later.

What DFAS is telling you is that they have paid you correctly and if any backpay is due it will come from the VA.

Thanks Jimmy and Ricky and Pete, I hope the retro will arrive soon and also balance out what I think is due.

Question; Does the explanation of payment letter validate the retro pay was actually VA and/or CRDP? or?

Meanwhile, I find it odd the CRDP payment statement of "paid correctly to date". For now, I guess thats a coverall as well as clear statement from DFAS that thier numbers are "up to date." Will see how it breaks down when the $xxxx.xx gets here. At least I was told how much to expect.Then comes the tax corrections; increase of taxes if the retro is CRDP backdated pay and decrease of taxes for the other less than 50% rating change. (went from 20 to40, then 60). Again, thanks and g'nite,cg

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
