I was recently increased from 20% to 80%. My first new CRDP VA check will be $1603 this month. Since they have not added my wife and children yet I am supposing that the $1603 is my $1503 (80% without dependents) plus $100 for my SMC-K (ED). Would I be correct in assuming that?
I am confused, because before I was only getting $355 retired pay offset from retirement pay and $129 CRSC for the 10% that was combat related. Does the fact that I am now CDRP mean I get my SMC-K?
I just added my family (they wouldn't let me when I was only 20%), how long does it normally take to start getting paid for them. Will this hold my Back Pay or will this just create another audit? My RO is Winston Salem.
