Combat-related Special Compensation

Question

Can anyone explain Combat-Related Special Compensation to me? For example, is it based on your overall va rating? Or, for only the injuried knee etc, not for the overall rating? Thanks in advance.

I know each branch of service has its own application procedures, but I imagine the rules are pretty much the same. My CRSC was filed with the Army. As far as I know, it is not based on your full VA disability rating.

The only items covered by CRSC are injuries or wounds received in combat or in combat type training. For instance, injuring a knee while running would not qualify, but hurting your back in a parachute jump might. Any combat injuries, including TBI and PTSD would be covered. I think you can do a search on your USAF website and find out more. Hope this helps! Good luck!

The Value of the CRSC Benefit:

DFAS pays CRSC based on the combined disability rating of combat-related disabilities as determined by your branch of service. Additionally, only combat-related disabilities for which you actually receive Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) compensation will be considered.

DFAS recently posted new information regarding changes associated with the National Defense Act of 2008. Visit the DFAS website to learn more. Follow the link below for more detailed information.

All I can say is that ussually there is an ambassador that has the duty to help you fill out those claims, ours in the Army is the cicilian that works in the retirement section located in Bldg 1.

Good luck!

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
