Toadman,Up until 2004 any amount a military retiree got from the VA (disability copmensation) was deducted from your military retirement, dollar for dollar. Then in 2004 they passed a law that would allow the military retirees, with over 50% VA disability to get their military retirement in addition to their VA Disability and called it CRDP. But the had to complicate it (just a rule the Government has) by not only requiring that the retiree have at lease a 50% disabilitu from the VA, but the CRDP would be phased in til 2014. In 2014 you wil get your full retirement in the form of CRDP (this is what the $23.00 on your RAS represents.)Do not confuse or combine VA compensation with CRDP. They are two seperate payments from two different sources. CRDP comes from DFAS as this is who you earned your military retirement from. VA comp comes from the VA because you had the misfortunt to get messed up somewhat whiles serving your country and earning that retirement from DFAS.VA compensation (for your disability) is never taxed.Your military retirement is taxed and CRDP is nothing more than the return of your military retirement so if it was taxable to start with, it is still taxable when it is returned to you as CRDP.
Again you are being paid by two different agencies, DFAS pays you military retirement/CRDP and the VA pays your disability compensation. As fare as you are concerned one has nothing to do with the other.
There is also CRSC which is also the return of your military retirement the same as CRDP except it is not taxed (your VA comp must be combat related to get this). Apparently you do not qualify for this so lets not go into it now and save you some more confusion.
I certainly hope this helps you to understand your pay situation and RAS better.

So would CRDP (restoration or retirement pay) be taxed if the retirement pay is not taxable? Don't know the answer but it could make a difference.
MikeThe OP, Toadman, stated in his sentence "For military retired (20+ yrs) CRDP folks." that his concerns were about a conventional DoD LOS retirement—not a DoD disability retirement nor a Ch 61 retirement. As such, my response addressed his question.However, you do ask a good question. I, too, wonder if CRDP is based on a DoD disability retirement, would it be taxable? It seems IRS should make a ruling on this.
