    Question Pay raise?

    Advertisements
    Checked my bank account this morning and we are still getting the same amount as usual, no increase at all. With the new pay raise and BAH increase, our paycheck should be about $50 or more extra per paycheck. Anyone else have this issue? I thought the new rates would be in effect for JAN 15 paycheck. I'm going on to check our LES at some point today, but I was wondering if there is something I'm not understanding...

    The pay raise was nullified by the increase in FICA. Pay raise was 1.7% and FICA (soc sec tax) increase was 2%, so he actually had a -0.3% increase (thus loss of pay). So, basically the only increase he would be getting is BAH.

    If his state had any kind of tax changes that also cause a decrease in pay that would be reflecting as well.

    Yup!! some people are even seeing a loss of pay,,, like us 15 dollars a pay period and for the entire CG we have not gotten the BAH increase yet due to an error at PPC.
