Acting to Substansive - Seniority Date?

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by LazyLoki, Dec 15, 2010.

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. Hi guys,

    just a quick one. If you come off the board while you are in Acting rank is your seniority backdated to when you were granted acting? Or does your seniority start with when you are actually promoted to substansive?

    I've had a look at JSP 754 but can't really see anything. Is there a specific JSP that covers this?

  2. Yoru seniority starts when you become substantive. You may receive higher pay (i.e., incremental increases and annual pay rises) but that is not an indication in itself of seniority. For instance you will still need to have the minimum number of SJARs or OJARS in yoru substantive rank for promotion to the next rank. All clear?
  3. Each Corps seems to be slightly different but most people are promoted to acting rank first, then complete CLM Part 1 and then sub rank is backdated to when acting rank was granted. If you are SSgt you will not need the CLM for sub rank.

    You are not supposed to be promoted to sub rank before the start of the promotion year, ie. 1 Apr or 1 Oct depending on rank.

    Clear as mud?? - ask your RCMO
