Acting and Substansive IBD

Discussion in 'Reports & Promotion' started by cherryviper, Mar 30, 2011.

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. Just a quick question on this, I have been in acting rank for just over a year and a half now, have been posted into another slot that requires me to be at the rank I am currently acting. Should I pick up off the board would my IBD stay at the date I was given acting rank or if/when I do come off the board will I then start my IBD from that date possibly losing out 6 months?

    I understand that the seniority wont start until the date I am promoted to substansive, just wondering what happens with regards to the IBD.
  2. guess I will find out soon enough :)
  3. Hi mate,
    I am in the same boat and been told by RAO that my seniority is from the substantive promotion date but the IBD stays from the date you were granted acting rank. Hope this helps.
  4. Just noticed the date of this thread sorry.
  5. Quite true
  6. Confirmed on JPA - Sub Date Apr 11, IBD Nov 09

    Thanks for the replies :)
