Question

Could someone clarify the choice of CRDP and CRSC for me? Please see the scenario outlined below.

1. Retiree with more than 20 years service

2. Rated (currently) at 20 percent for disability that qualifies for CRSC and 20 percent for non-combat associated disabilities

3. Currently not drawing CRSC or CRDP--not eligible for CRDP at this time

4. Has submitted new and material evidence that might result in retroactive CRDP (i.e., will bring total rating to 50 percent)

5. If I make a claim now for CRSC which I'm confident will be approved at 20 percent, will that preclude me from making a decision to draw CRDP upon approval at 50 percent? In other words, I can't make a choice between CRDP and CRSC now because I am not eligible for CRDP at this time, but I am eligible for CRSC. However, if I get the 50 percent rating, the amount payable is substantially higher than the rate I will get for CRSC.

6. In summary, can a military retiree make a retroactive decision regarding the choice between CRSC and CRDP? I know about the annual selection period.

Thank you

It would be great if VA made a decision for you before open season-

http://www.dfas.mil/retiredpay/crsccrdpopenseason.html

I posted considerable info here at hadit on CRDP/CRSC-if you use the main search engine info will come up and we do have have some CRDP/or CRSC vets here-

You asked a good question-but I am not sure how your ratings fit into these programs-

http://www.military.com/benefits/military-...aring-crsc-crdp

CRDP is supposed to be automatic- then a vet can change at some point to CRSC if that is more favorable to them.

Thanks...CRDP is automatic if a retired veteran qualifies for it. Among the requirements is that the vet be rated at 50 percent or more. I am currently rated at 40 percent. I've searched many places and have not seen this particular situation addressed.

Again thanks for your reply. I think I am going to apply for the CRSC now since I could use the money. What's that old saying? "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush...?"

Of course with my luck, the bird might...errr....leave a deposit in my hand. :lol:

Cheers!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
