The markup of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in the House and Senate will begin soon. FRA is working to add a provision to these “must-pass” bills to expand concurrent receipt.
Legislation to expand concurrent receipt has been introduced in the House and Senate. Rep. Gus Bilirakis (FL) has introduced the “Retired Pay Restoration Act” (H.R. 303) that extends Concurrent Retirement and Disability Payments (CRDP) eligibility to retirees rated less than 50 percent disabled, and Senator Jon Tester (Mt.) has introduced a similar bill (S. 1147) in the Senate. Rep. Sanford Bishop (GA) has introduced the “Disabled Veterans Tax Termination Act” (H.R. 333) that is comprehensive concurrent receipt legislation that includes the elements of H.R. 303 and would also give concurrent receipt to all Chapter 61 retirees with less than 20 years of service.
Rep. Bilirakis (FL) and Senator Jon Tester (MT) have introduced the “Major Richard Star Act” (H.R. 1282 /S. 344 respectively) that expands concurrent receipt to include Combat Related Special Compensation (CRSC) beneficiaries who are medically retired with less than 20 years of service.
