LSSA BONUS, CAN I STILL GET IT??

#1
Hi there, I have just qualified (or have I?) for first LSSA bonus, I know that this is finishing but I can't find out any information on when or indeed if it has already? I have trualled through army.mod and army net but I can't seem to find an answer. I am currently on tour at the moment at an out det so it is kinda hard to find it out. Any help would be great, Cheers

For the Army the bonus stops on the transition to LSA under JPA - Mar/Apr 07 so if you have qualified now you will be OK - Your RAO need to submit the paperwork to Glasgow, this should hapen automatically when they update LSSA cards as required monthly for those in issue!! but it is worth checking if you can get a message to them somehow!

Fredy - you are confusing the LSSA bonus with the new operational bonus intriduced wef 1 Apr 06 2 different things - the operational bonus is £12.31 per day (tax free) and is only paid in in certain theatres. The LSSA AT bonus is £1350.00 (Taxable) and is payable regardless of theatre, if you are somewhere hot and sandy you could well quailfy for both!!

one of my guys will qualify for his LSSA bonus on 29 Mar 07 (no, i'm not kidding). he won't return from the exercise until into april.

will he still be eligible, and will he be okay to claim for it even after implementation of JPA?

Simalar on mine I've just qualified for my first bonus but have just been extended for the second time so won't finish tour till June, so after POTL won't be in unit till August.

Am I also right in thinking (My clerks weren't sure when I asked them) that the bonuses are 280 days and 365 days? If so I would be due the second the day after JPA is meant to arrive. Great fun

I have looked in to this a fair bit and unfortunetly I have just missed out, as I was on a load of gay exercises from Jan to Mar 05 so these have been knocking my total down to under 300. Although i am now on medium band pay I will not qualify for my bonus.

I asked my clerks about it and he brought it on screen and showed me a kind of databse view of my lssa days. You don't have to sign for as it will automatically register you as having qualified so as long as you qualify before Apr 07 then you should be fine. Although I am told that you may have to remind them that they owe you the money.

I believe that between the last TSR, 13 March 07, until JPA Roll Out, 26 March 07, we will have to use a manual JPA Spread Sheet to publish all our occourences, which I presume will have to go to JPAC. This just gets better and better :frustrated:

Last possible transmission to Glasgow via UNICOM is 2 Mar first "hands on" on JPA is 12 Apr everything in the interim is via manual spreadsheets sent to JPAC.

I was told that 02 March 07 has now slipped to 13 March 07, you may want to check, I believe that this is due to technical difficulties, however, I am more inclined to believe that JPAC wish to reduce the amount of manual transmissions inbound. :shakefist:

Paywog, appoligies my bad, 130307 is when JPA (Tri Service) closes down to load the Army Records, your quite right, last possible TSR by our Legacy System (UNICOM) is 020307. :frustrated:

LJS thanks for that.

Question - if JPA is closing down on 13 Mar to load Army stuff any idea why UNICOM SAs are to be "stood by" over the weekend 3/4 Mar - I assume all UNICOM data along with Pay Data and ROS Data is being extracted and merged before being dumped onto JPA, what do you reckon?? Can't see any problems with that!!!!

As you can probably imagine, the amount of occourences being input will be huge, hence having UNICOM SA's stood by just in case Back Up is required due to overload etc. The Navy had major issues when PAS (Personnel Admin System) completed their final inputs and the army are keen to avoid this happening.
