CRSC is not really “extra” money in your paycheck. Rather, it is compensation to make up for the reduction of military retirement due to receipt of VA compensation for a combat-related injury.

However, if you qualify for CSRC, you would receive a payment to offset the offset. In other words, your pay would be the same.
