I am a 20 yr retiree and I was told by my VSO that they will be phasing in all payments of CRDP to all veterans with va disabilities no matter what percentage you are. I can't find anything that states this. I am currently at 40% disabled with 20% on my back and 30% for depression. I currently am appealing the award they gave me for my back and asking for another 10%. I know you get the CRDP automatically when you get to 50%, but is it true that they are phasing in all percentages soon? I have friends who are collecting CRDP payments and spent only 2-4 yrs in the military and they have retired from a state or say caterpillar job and also receiving a great retirement from them. I don't think its fair. Thanks.
