    SRB Question

    Advertisements
    Does anyone if we will still get DH's last SRB payment in Oct. He has no idea and is fine just waiting till Sept's LES to find out Anyways, he remembers being told that if he re-upped before this enlistment was up, that he would lose the last payment. Which makes NO sense to me. Whether he re-ups or not, he is still fullfilling the enlistment that he got the bonus for? Anyone know. I cant check bupers online either. They took off his SRB info when he changed rates, even though he is still entitled to it.

    If this is your last year of the enlistment you don't get a payment. For instance you re-upped for 6 years your initial payment counts as 1 payment, then you will get 5 others. the last OCT of your enlistment you usually don't get your bonus. we didn't and we were PISSED. lol


    I will miss you SOS...

    That would be worse. I hate how DH has NO problems with waiting till the LES comes out to find out things. Irritates me to no end.

    And see when we re-enlisted last time it was before we wouldn't have gotten his payment ( lol) so we had no idea, but this last SRB OCT came with no bonus and dh went and investigated. It was not cool once we found out lol.
    So now its my mission to tell everyone.

    Can you add up all the previous payments and see if it adds up to the total? That's what we did because his EAOS is right around the same time he reenlisted, so we weren't sure which year would be the last. So I added up them up and we still get one more this October.

    Well I usually just count how many payments we were given including the initial payment ( mainly because we were never able to re-enlist in a tax free zone lol) We didn't know that the initial payment counted as an installment. we thought you got an initial and then 6 more installments kwim.

    you know what, we are short 3 grand from his bonus, which is what we get for an oct payment(including taxes). It would be nice if we get what we are still owed
