5 Year Bonus Query

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by johnno808, Nov 24, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm due my 5 Year Bonus in January but I have heard, and no-one at my place can substantiate this, that because I signed off in late 07 but signed back on in early 08 (therefore never leaving the Army) that I am not entitled to my bonus.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I have looked in the relevant JSP and as far as I can see you cannot claim it only if you have a Termination Notice in at the time of claim.

    Many Thanks.
  2. Doesnt sit right with me have you looked on JPA under self service to check your eligibility?
  3. Yes, It says something along the lines of not eligible under old scheme.

    I think this means my reckonable service date fell under the new scheme as a lad at my old place had this on his and he has claimed his??
  4. When you sign for the bonus you are stating that you have not given notice to terminate, which as you signed back on, means you have not given notice to terminate.

    You are therefore entitled to the money - don't spend it all at once
  5. Mega.

    Thanks mate.
