Imagine my surprise today to find out that I have been discharged from the Army nearly a month ago unbeknown to me or my Regiment. I will tell you about the events leading to my unemployment nightmare. Today was a normal day fraught with the frustrations of Unit G4 work. To cheer myself up, I tried to access the JPA site to submit a leave of absence for a forthcoming holiday in September. I was eventually locked out of the system after my 10th incorrect log-in attempt. A hasty call to JPA enquiries ensued to attempt a password reset. After the individual had extracted my personal details, I was informed that I was no longer serving and was in fact discharged nearly a month ago. My reaction was incredulous disbelief. WTF I am doing in work then. (Rips uniform off and states bo;;ocks to this, I`m not being paid, I`m off attitude of a 2 year old having a temper tantrum in the sweet aisle). I felt like saying that I realised that NRPS 05 contracts were implemented as a cost cutting exercise to save the MOD money and an easier way to rid the MOD of burdensome NRPS without adhering to rules and regulations covering Regular Soldiers, and had not realised JPA had become the silent executioner. (Pause for breath, rant over). I am currently on the old style NRPS contract (contract renewed after 3 years) and it seems as if the re engagement paperwork never arrived at Glasgow. JPA automatically will discharge if not told otherwise!!!!!!!!!! Whilst I am not aux fait with G1 procedures I am horrified that I could be discharged without any paperwork being raised, without either myself or my Regiment being informed, and without any discharge medical procedures being carried out. I now find myself with the frustrating process of trying to perform a âreverse dischargeâ procedure ensuring that my service is still classed as continuous, resolving pension issues, and appeasing snarling creditors (the assumption being made by them is that I am the latest victim of the credit crunch) at the end of the month who may not be paid due to my unemployed civilian status for the last month. Has anyone else experienced this incompetent computerised scenario which smacks of Little Britainâs âComputer says Noooooâ?
