Va Still Hasn't Made Switch, So No Pay Yet, No Dfas Audit


Question

Have had BBE since 1st week of Aug. 2013 granting 80%. I sent proper form to switch my retirement from Navy to VA....Have waited 2 months and decided to see why I had not heard anything. Since I know my Branch of service must hold the audit and send it back to the VA, I contacted them first on followup. They told me that they cannot do anything until I am drawing VA compensation. Soooo that means VA has not even taken care of that. Doesn't do much good to tell someone they are granted the compensation if you won't take the action to allow me to start drawing it..Guess I'll try Peggy tomorrow, Don't know if I will get anywhere. I know they got the form because it was in an envelope with other evidence for another claim that showed up on ebenefits as being received. Has anyone else run into this? When you are receiving retirement pay from your branch of service, then trying to get it switched to the VA??

"When you are receiving retirement pay from your branch of service, then trying to get it switched to the VA??"

I think you mean CRDP or CRSC......???????

We have some CRDPERs and CRSCers here and I hope they chime in......I think they all got stuck waiting for the DFAS audit.

The DFAS Home page says this:

“The Continuing Resolution signed by the President on October 17 allows all Reserve and Guard members to receive pay entitlements to include bonuses. DFAS Military Pay Operations is processing the submitted transactions now. Any questions should be addressed to your servicing Finance Office. “

I guess that applies to the CRDP/CRSC audits as well.

They have some contact numbers to but you probably have them:

My error for saying DFAS, I sent stuff to the NAVY which they have confirmed receiving. However, I am still drawing my Navy retirement because the VA has not processed my switch to drawing VA compensation in lieu of my Navy retirement. The Navy said they could not even start the audit until I switched to drawing VA compensation. Then they hold the audit and forward it to the VA. I sent the proper form to va to make the switch to drawing the compensation from them which would stop the Navy retirement. Then the audit will be held by the Navy and determine how much my CRSC will be and start that. Then send the audit to the VA so they can figure how much retro to pay me. The Audit is for computing the retro. Everything I have drawn in retirement will offset 90% of my retro up until 2008, then it becomes a little tricky as they have to compute what CRSC would have been, then subtract the difference between what I drew as navy retirement vs CRSC, then that would be the amount subtracted from the retro due for each month.

But, nothing can start until VA switches me over to their compensation...At least that is what I get from the answer I got back from the Navy....and naturally I can't get through to Peggy....I may just take the 200 mile drive to houston and see if I can get them moving in person...The Navy is also trying to get them to move, so I will see if they have better phone numbers than I do to get this rolling.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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.
