    employment 2.jpeg

    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

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!

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
