AFPRB

#1
The "directed letter" has finally worked its way on to my desk, it states that the pay increase should be noticed in April's pay statement. I was expecting to wait for months and then have the increase backdated.

In any case, my pay hasn't increased, despite the new pay scale (published with the AFPRB 2009) saying my new salary is a good few quid more than 2008. Why is this? Am I being a mong? (I spent yesterday discussing LOAC so am somewhat dazed today)

Your help gratefully received.

Yep you are being a mong!!! :D

Whilst you recieved a pay rise, everything else went up, Accom, food etc etc you should have noticed a small rise though even if it was just £20, depends on what u are earning now, i earn £41k and noticed £40 extra.

Look for the box at the lower left of your payslip is marked "Payroll Information" on the printed version. On Armynet, the box is called "Pay Information".

In there, my payslip shows: Basic Pay: Annual Salary 3 Guineas.

If you check the March and April payslip, you should see that the figures are different (by about 2.8%) and you should be able to find the same figures on the published payscales.

The pay rise was performance related. The % of increase went along with the grading on the SJAR.

Thanks Litotes. As I said earlier, my pay (as I read it on my pay statement, in the bottom left hand corner), has not altered by one single pence in the last three months. Just wondered if anyone else's had stayed the same?

You could be on Mark Time Rates of Pay, in which case you would not receive an increase.

There are a number of reasons why this may happen - down ranging of your trade for example I think gives you a period of time Reserved Rights (which means you stay on the Higher range initially), followed by a period of Mark time rates, which means you get no increases any more until your pay level on the lower range overtakes the Mark Time rate in issue. (ie what you actually get.)

Clear as mud!

Are you on a specialist pay range? Some of these (notably the medical trades) have a separate pay review body aligned to their civillian counterparts - this is sometimes released later in the year and backdated.

I am a specialist but our "special" letter said that we'd see the difference in our April pay statement. The SPS are on to it....watch this space!
Clearly not that special, or you would have received a pay rise :D
Oh Doctor, my ribs! Maybe I should have said Speshul? Thanks for your input anyway!

Anytime, I hope you get your pay sorted before the turn of the next millenium :wink:

Sorry to drag this up again, apparently the reason I haven't had the pay rise is that SHQ haven't had the letter of authority. I still haven't had the rise and to be honest, I really need it this month! Just moved house etc etc. If I send them the letter (from intranet) would they be able to action it then or does the letter need to come from Glasgow?

Thanks!
