    Question Deployment Pay!

    Advertisements
    My husband has been deployed to Iraq for about 13 days now, I just happen to look at his LES and it was showing that Sept. 15th there will be $250 added to his paycheck. Is that just separation pay? I thought he was suppose to get other pay for being in Iraq. I was told deployment status does not start until 30 days could that be why?. Can someone help me out. He is Marine Corps.

    usually any deployment extra's don't come in for 30 days after the deployment starts. family sep starts 30 days after he leaves, so if he is seperated from you for 30 days no matter where he is he will get family sep. so even if he is in Ohio till he deploys he will still get it.. all the other stuff he has to be in country for thirty days to recieve those pays.

    Thanks, I have another question, before his deployment he went to training in California for 6 weeks and never got the separation pay, could that extra money be for that 30 days and not separation pay for his Iraq deployment???

    not 100% sure on that. we were always told if they were seperated from you for more than thirty days you got sep pay, but dh went to school for 6 weeks over the summer and we didn't get any. Also by september 15th he will have been gone for 30 days ( give or take if depending on his actual departure date) I would say wait till his septemeber LES comes up and that should tell you everything he is getting. hth.
