I Joined the Army at the tender age of 16, now at the age of 15 (over 9 years served) I am looking forward to my 8 year money. I belived that I was elegible for my 8 year money on my 26th birthday (jan 2007) but upon looking on my pay slip i see that it says my reconable service date is July 98 over 8 years ago. Am I right in thinking that i should get my money 8 years after the date on my reckonable service date on my pay slip? Advice please Buy you a drink if i do get it!!!!
