That House bill is ten years old.

DFAS info is current:

http://www.dfas.mil/retiredmilitary/disability/payment.html

And CRDP CRSC is well explained at Military.com:

http://www.military.com/benefits/military-pay/special-pay/combat-related-special-compensation.html

They have discussion there in the Mil.com forums as well as here at hadit on CRDP /CRSC

supposed to be in effect now. If you are a retiree, you should be receiving your full retirement and your % from VA. If your not, I would call DFAS as soon as possible!

Meg is right and you are right Proudvet ...the ten years are up..maybe this is a more current Mil.com explanation:

http://www.military.com/NewContent/0%2C13190%2CRN_080305_Receipt%2C00.html

and “Concurrent Retirement and Disability Payment (CRDP) Program

This program provides a 10-year phase-out of the offset to military retired pay due to receipt of VA disability compensation. The phase-out will be complete in 2014. Qualified individuals are those who are retired active or reserve members who are currently entitled to retired pay and who also have a combined VA disability rating of 50% or greater. Members retired under military disability provisions (Chapter 61 to title 10 United States Code) must have at least 20 years of service. CRDP is a restoration of retired pay and subject to all the same laws and regulations as retired pay. A brief program description follows”::

http://militarypay.defense.gov/retirement/concurrent_dod_va.html

(I wonder if that will get snafued like part of the original CRDP/CRSC program did.....but It should be pretty cut and rdried by now.)

I fall into this category. Although I rate the benefit under the law they continue to make me wait...and wait...and wait. Seems like the answer's always the same, much like getting retro pay.

Their answer: sorry, you rate this payment under the law but since your already receiving compensation payments we want to focus on the backlog and pay people for claims who are not yet receiving monetary benefits first.

Believe me, I've tried every avenue known to mankind but I've been stonewalled. All I can do is wait and hope to see the $$ before I die. To those like me who are waiting...let's hope the VA gets to us sooner...than later.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
