Huge dramas with GYH / JPA - Clerk with common sense HELP!

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by Dontdreamit, Jul 30, 2008.

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. My unit are having some massive dramas with GYH/JPA out in Germany.

    Myself and another NCO have both had legitimate claims denied.

    The issues -

    1. Can you claim GYH/Expenses in advance of actually travelling. We were told that you could however it seems our higher formation has veto'd this rule and now one of the lads has been accused of a fraudulent claim, because he has not actually taken the trip yet his claim has been paid.

    2. When travelling in Germany must you claim MMA from the NEAREST airport regardless of flight or do you actually claim from the airport you fly from?

    Nearest Airport.

    We don't make the rules by the way.
  3. Brilliant.

    Even if the airbridge does not exist?

    That is bonkers - but as you rightly say, you don't make the rules.

    Now the first point -

    Can you claim in advance?

  5. Your a star mate.

    Genuinely appreciated.

  6. You cannot claim Get you home in advance!
  7. I thought you could claim GYH(Overseas) in advance? Up to 100%? I'm sure that's what the JSP says?
    As long as you travel within 30 days?

    (thought that was paywog for a minute then!!!)

    06.0724. Advances. Service personnel eligible to claim GYH(O) may claim an
    advance of up to 100% of the anticipated GYH(O) entitlement for themselves and their
    accompanying eligible immediate family members. The advance must be cleared by
    claiming for the GYH(O) journey travel costs on an Expenses Claim within 30 days of
    the anticipated return from the period of leave for which the GYH(O) advance was
    paid. If not cleared by the Service person within those 30 days the advance will be
    recovered from the Service person’s salary.
  9. There we go, and I knew 30 days had something to do with it.
  10. Cheers guys -

    Bn is still saying computer says no though. Oh well :roll:
