    Family Separation Pay Question

    Advertisements
    How long does it take for family separation pay to show up? DH was gone for over 30 days in Apr - May (they went over 30 days in beginning of May).
    Any ideas as to when we'll see the extra money? I had thought we would get it the following pay period (June1), but we haven't as of yet. Maybe it takes a little while, I know the military can be slow with this kind of thing.

    You'd think I would know this stuff by now, but the last time he was getting sep pay was during deployment and the pay was all screwed up and we ended up getting it after a few months, so I wasn't sure what the usual time frame for this stuff is.

    You get this pay when the service member is away from their duty station for more than 30 days consecutively (Like out to sea with the ship in my DH's case). I just wasn't sure how long it take for it to actually get paid to us.

    I would think it would show up after one or two pay periods. If not I'd have him call PSD or whoever takes care of the pay issues.

    Sorry i'm totally not helping you out, b/c I don't know..

    But if DH goes to korea on his 1yr tour, does that mean we'd get extra money?

    Oh no problem, I'm glad you got information too!
    And yes, you will get separation pay if your DH goes to Korea, it's 250 a month, I believe.

    Ya, I was told that we should see it after 1 ir 2 pay cycles. If you don't have it on this next one then I would call.
