Retro Pay 60 Days In The Bank!


cowgirl

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

Am content just now, 60 days after rating change, VA retro pay onboard, paid a few bills. No explanation letter yet.No dependents rate yet, am hoping that will be "retro"d. Winter's next, kids growin' and need clothes. Part time work here is tiresome because of my health issues. Husband works, but I know he takes up slack in what I could be earning full time. (gettin' a yummy new bathrobe for him) Hope VA retro comes round for others expectin' it here too, feels good to get some of whats due. cg

Congratulations to you as well. Your side bar shows only 20%, so it must be new. I recieved retroactive pay from VA for 2 ratings recieved two months ago. 1 new, 1 increase. The rating letter sort of explained it with a chart, dates awarded, amount withheld and all. Hoping more details soon, per say, how crdp and va offset worked. cg

Sixth, Bought a cyberallenwrench one size fits all special just for you! Ok, not; but the real 'tools' I would buy would be CFR, M2, DSM, etc and all veteran help books to place in a library here for loanin' out. Thinking of saving trees, engraving on recyclable metal or stone could be the solution. Okay, CAN I send $ through the mail to Hadit now? whats the address? Thanks, cg

Your Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP) is fully taxable.

Combat Related Special Compensation (CRSC) is not.

Congrats!

Errr...just to clarify, I was congratulating you on the award, NOT the tax requiirement!

I hope to have a similar situation in the next year or so (i.e., CRDP).

CG it is taxable but hey what the hell, our entire life is taxable. Congrats on the payment. Now if you were to throw a huge party, maybe, just maybe you could write it off as a business expense!!!!!!!

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”
     
    Note:

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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
