    *Where did this money come from????*

    Advertisements
    Hello everybody who's still here!!!

    We have USAA and of course hubby is still deployed...
    Anyway, there is extra money in our account...a lot of extra money...$1000.
    We have no idea where it came from or what it may be for.
    My husband recently re-enlisted and got promoted, but he got his bonus last paycheck. We have not filed taxes or anything. I know you guys can't tell me exactly what it's for, but maybe you have suggestions or info that could help me out???

    Thanks a bunch!

    I highly suggest you put it into your savings account and then have your spouse do an inquiry with his finance folks. In case its an overpayment DFAS will take the whole amount once they figure it out in a heartbeat.

    It was with his regular pay, I'm assuming. Because the total amount was direct deposited into the account at the same time.

    It doesn't say anything on the LES. It was exactly $1000 more than we usually get.

    Don't touch it. Wait until the end of the month LES and then see what it says. If it doesn't say anything, contact finance.

    Oh hey, that's my money! I knew I left it somewhere.

    Just set it aside in case the money gets "re-called"; better safe than sorry until you know why you have it and if it's not an error.
