What is Co-Managed Care for Veterans?

Concurrent Retirement and Disability Payments (CRDP)


Concurrent Retirement and Disability Payments (CRDP) restores retired pay on a graduated 10-year schedule for retirees with a 50 to 90 percent VA-rated disability. Concurrent retirement payments increase 10 percent per year through 2013. Veterans rated 100% disabled by VA are entitled to full CRDP without being phased in. Veterans receiving benefits at the 100% rate due to individual unem¬ployability are entitled to full CRDP in 2009. 

Eligibility: To qualify, veterans must also meet all three of the follow¬ing criteria: 
  1. Have 20 or more years on active duty, or a reservist age 60 or older with 20 or more creditable years. 
  2. Be in a retired status. 
  3. Be receiving retired pay (must be offset by VA payments). 

Retirees do not need to apply for this benefit. Payment is coordinated between VA and the Department of Defense (DOD).
