    Backpay

    Advertisements
    Long story short, my husband made E-5 a few months ago. Wondering how long it could take to start getting paid as one? Trying to figure out the budget, any insight would be appreciated thanks!

    All depends on his command and the admin under them and how hard they push the paperwork/check-up on it.

    I was always told it was 30 days from the effective date of promotion.
    Have you or DH spoken to anyone at finance about it yet?

    it's been awhile. Only back pay we've received, that I remember was from after we got married, and that was BAH. I think it just started at 6 months after he made e-5

    I've seen it happen that way, but if it is a large amount it has come in increments as well.

    ditto...they don't back pay from the date he pinned on, it starts that day he gets paid. it sucks but even chiefs have to do it. its like that time from pinning to the day he gets paid its like a temporary trial where they don't get back pay for serving in that new rank.
