  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

PTSD/MST & CRSC?

Question

Maybe I'm just confused on this but I wanted to see what could result from this instance. 

First off - I have yet to establish service connection for PTSD as of yet, however, that decision will be made in my favor, and very soon. There's not a speck of doubt there. The system has been trying to play catch-up now for several years, and we're almost to the end result now.

I was severed from the military, not retired. This is something that will be audited and corrected as well.

Bear in mind it took YEARS to get everything going up to this point, my fight is long from over.

Next -

I am a victim of MST, so let's get that out of the way. These attacks happened both in state, as well as deployed. Is there a possibility for CRSC to apply due to my deployment including Hazard pay?

Note -

I did not engage or become engaged by enemy contact at any points in my enlistment....just our enemies here at home.

My VA award was for PTSD-MST as well, my prayers. 

I served 22 years and receive Concurrent pay. ( as per Berta's article includes) - it is automatic once your retirement pay starts, it is a part of the questionnaire for survivors benefits et al.

F Y I ( this is if you don't fall under the combat...)

Sorry to cut in on the chat guys. I just wanted to ask, I am medically retired from the Navy for Crohns Disease, but in my signature you can see all of my Granted VA SCs. I applied for CRSC, when I was first retired in 2014, but I was new to all of this and did not know what I was doing. I currently do not receive my Navy Retired Pay. Can I apply for CRSC? and if so, How do you guys recommend I begin the process. Thanks in advance, and apologize for the interuption. God Bless

CRSC is explained in the link above your post here.

This link shows the difference between CRDP and CRSC:

https://www.dfas.mil/retiredmilitary/disability/comparison.html

CRSC has to be formally applied for, but the CRDP is supposed to be automatic.

There is discussion here if you search for CRSC CRDP.
