Just when I had given up on CRSC, DFAS sends out another notice that I should apply.

I am a disabilty retiree my military pension would be $700-800 if I collected it. I don't because VA is more
I am 80% from the VA with U/I, of that 50% is PTSD from Vietnam

Does anyone understand this new situation, how much would I staand to get, if anything?

No, I don't really understand it, but I became curious, an intro is here CRSC and CRDP Payment :

Quote:
Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) and Concurrent Retirement Disability Pay (CRDP)

Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) and Concurrent Retirement Disability Pay (CRDP) are programs created by Congress to allow eligible military retirees to receive monthly entitlements in addition to retired pay.

CRSC is a special compensation for combat-related disabilities. It is non-taxable, and retirees must apply to their Branch of Service to receive it.

CRDP is a restoration of retired pay for retirees with service-connected disabilities, and it is taxable. No application is required. Eligible retirees receive CRDP automatically.

The purpose of these entitlements is to recover some or all of the retired pay that military retirees waive for VA disability compensation.

Looks like they will audit and "determine whether or not you are due retroactive payment."...

I did some research, the one thing they didn't change is that those of us too injured to complete 20years are still screwed. Maybe next time
