Concurrent Receipt (CRDP) Pay Computation

There are many financial considerations when planning for retirement
There are many financial considerations when planning for retirement
Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP) allows military retirees to receive both military retired pay and VA compensation. This was prohibited until the CRDP program began on January 1, 2004.

CRDP was a "phase in" of benefits that gradually restored a retiree's VA disability offset. This means that an eligible retiree's retired pay gradually increased each year until the phase in was complete effective January 2014.

You do not need to apply for CRDP. If qualified, you were enrolled automatically.
