Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) is funding for veterans who sustained qualifying injuries during combat or other hazardous activities while serving in the military. The payment varies based on the years of service, the severity of the injury, retirement pay base, and other factors. Applying for CRSC can be intimidating, as you will need to fill out the proper claim and submit evidence of your disability. With so much at stake, you should not feel that you have to attempt this process alone.
If you were injured while in the service of our country, you deserve the highest pay possible in recognition of your sacrifice. These funds can help provide for your well-being and that of your family. CRSC money is not taxed and may be earned in addition to VA disability compensation. For help in applying for CRSC payments, reach out to our trusted veteran’s lawyer today.
How Much Does CRSC Pay?
If the veteran applies within six years of the date the injury occurred, they may be entitled to full retroactive payment. The payment amount depends on several factors and could vary widely depending on your situation. The most important information in calculating payments is the severity of your injuries. In general, the higher the disability rating, the more you could be entitled to receive. It is also important to note that, unlike CRDP payments, CRSC is not subject to taxation.
If you are ready to apply for CRSC and receive the funding you deserve, reach out to us today. Our veteran’s affairs attorney has a deep understanding of the law and will be able to help you throughout the entire application process.
How Do You Qualify for CRSC Disability?
To qualify for CRSC, a veteran must be living and have an injury resulting from service-related actions. However, if the individual applied for CRSC benefits while living, the appropriate surviving beneficiary would continue to receive the funding after their death. The individual must also have completed at least twenty years of military service and be in “retired status.”
Qualifying conditions include any disabilities with more than a 10% rating. The injury could have occurred in many possible scenarios, such as armed conflict, training conditions simulating war, through an instrumentality of war, or if the veteran received a Purple Heart award.
