What is the CRSC Board?
Combat-Related Special Compensation is a monthly compensation paid for combat-related disabilities. CRSC was designed to restore a veteran's military retirement pay that has been offset by VA compensation when sufficient evidence exists to confirm the veteran's disability is combat-related.
Note: Spouses of deceased retirees (including other former spouses) are not eligible for CRSC. CRSC is considered "special compensation" and not retired pay, it is not subject to the Uniformed Services Former Spouse Protection Act (USFSPA).
