Stopped at J. Lovell FHCC today and talked to guy I gave my claim to in Sep 14, asked him if he knew anything about when I could expect decision--he said let me look, he did taking my SSN, then said OK, looks like they got your retirement stuff from DFAS. If I retired from GM or a civilian company would they be looking at this?? Will I get less if I am getting military retirement?? any feed back desired. Thanx

"If I retired from GM or a civilian company would they be looking at this??" Yes, if you had also retired from the military.

VA compensation can be offset by Military retirement pay.

For example my neighbor-20 years USAF, gets a 10% comp check from VA which is deducted from the Military retirement check amount he gets..

You could be eligible for one of these programs that regard the offset:(CRDP or CRSC)

they request your DFAS info, because it is law that every dollar for dollar be waived of retirement pay in leiu of VA tax free compensation. There are 2 programs that restore some of the waived retired pay.

Regular 20 yr retiree, that has less than 50% VA disability comp will waive dollar for dollar and it will NOT be restored under CDRP. If over 50% then some of the retirement DFAS pay will be restored. This law has existed since 2004.

CRSC is not automatic and must be applied for to your branch of service and it is a restoration of only combat related injuries, not just service connected. if you are in this group then you make an election each January, as CRSC is tax free. CDRP is taxable.

THanks. He elaborated more today, saying they have to audit my GOV records, he said this is good because in his words "they only do this if you are 50% or greater", says he has been doing BDD claims for years and only see's that transaction in records when personnel are at >50%. I retired after 30+ years (all Active Duty) so should be eligible to receive full retirement plus disability correct??

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.


    Leading to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?


    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    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
