Throughout history, our nation's veterans have trained for combat. Many of you served on the front lines and many served in critical support roles. All of you served with distinction and deserve to be compensated for your sacrifices for our country.
Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) provides tax-free monthly payments to eligible retired veterans with combat-related injuries. With CRSC you can receive an amount equal to or less than your length of service retirement pay and your VA disability compensation, if the injury is combat-related.
Traumatic Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (TSGLI)helps severely injured Soldiers through their time of need with a one-time payment. The amount varies depending on the injury, but it could be the difference that allows their family to be with them during recovery; helps them with unforeseen expenses; or gives them a financial head start on life after recovery.
TSGLI is an insurance program. It is bundled with Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) and an additional $1 has been added to the Soldier's SGLI premium to cover TSGLI.
TSGLI is not meant to serve as an ongoing income replacement like some types of insurance-it's there to help the Soldier through the tough times that occur as the result of a traumatic injury.
