Crsc And Crdp


Old 5311

Question

CRSC took effect June 1, 2003. Initially, payments went solely to active duty retirees who applied and were deemed to have combat-related disabilities rated at least 60 percent disabling or disabilities for which they received the Purple Heart. Eligibility later was expanded to any retiree having a combat-related disability to include reserve component retirees.

CRDP took effect Jan. 1, 2004. It is payable to retirees with 20 or more years of service and noncombat-related disabilities rated 50 percent or higher. CRDP payments are being phased in based on degree of disability. By 2014 it will end the retired pay reduction for all retirees rated at least 50 percent disabled.

THERE ARE MANY INJURED SC WARFIGHTERS WITHOUT 20 YRS. SERVICE. THEY WERE FOUND UNFIT FOR DUTY AND BOOTED OUT. THESE DESERVE THE SAME COMPENSATION AS A 20 YR RET. VET.

It is quite obvious that you are not familiar with VA disability compensation. What service connected compensation are these "warfighters" being deprived of?

I bet that I'll regret replying to this post...

Moe,

CRCS & CRPD are seperate and distinct from VA service connected disability.

(next time you reply to a post try not to appear so self rightous)

Agent orange exposure disabilities are considered instrumentalities of war as are Gulf war exposure disabilities for what it is worth.
