LSSA / LSA questions

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by Flying Felix, Dec 18, 2006.

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. There are couple of rumours floating around and I wonder if the pay gods out there would be able to dispel or confirm them:

    1. LSA / LSSA with not be paid if you are in your home theatre? e.g. UK based unit on exercise on SPTA.

    2. The tax back op deployment payment is paid with the loss of LSA / LSSA.

    Thanks.
     
  2. I was waiting for your rapid response WW and you didnt disappoint. :D Yet another who has far to much time on their hands, trolling these boards.
     
  3. ive got 1330 days lssa, how much will i get in lsa, can anyone help please?
     
  4. Took me ages to track these down. I believe you move up a level every 300 days, therefore you would be on level 5 (1200 - 1499) and a rate of £15.14

    LEVEL Daily Rate
    1 Apr 05 1 Apr 06
    Level 1 £5.84 £6.02
    Level 2 £9.14 £9.41
    Level 3 £12.45 £12.82
    Level 4 £13.65 £14.06
    Level 5 £14.70 £15.14
    Level 6 £15.75 £16.22
    Level 7 £16.80 £17.30
    Level 8 £18.38 £18.93
    Level 9 £19.43 £20.01
    Level 10 £20.48 £21.09
    Level 11 £21.52 £22.17
    Level 12 £22.58 £23.26
    Level 13 £23.63 £24.34
    Level 14 £24.68 £25.42
     
  5. thanks for that, is it more than the old lssa rate for that no of days
     
  6. oh sorry just realised what u have already written
     
  7. Sorry, the table translated badly in the paste (Ignore first column its 2005 rates, couldnt be bothered to edit :D). LSSA only has 3 levels, so yes you are a lot better off

    LSSA
    Basic Rate: £6.02 per day
    Middle Rate: £9.41 per day
    Higher Rate: £12.82 per day.
     
  8. cheers thanks for that
     
  9. Wickedwitch,

    Thanks for the reply but can you clarify the answer to my first question. I've followed your link, but I am just thick, and can't find an answer.
     
  10. JSP 752, Ch 5 is the ruling for granting of LSA.

    Definition

    Para 05.0103. e. Qualifying Separation. QS is defined as 10 consecutive days or more involuntary separated that is taken at a location the precludes return to the duty station, family home or permanent residence during normal stand down periods (weekends).

    There is a lot to the JSP, read it at your peril. :D
     
  11. :p
     
  12. To sum up
    1. LSA / LSSA with not be paid if you are in your home theatre? e.g. UK based unit on exercise on SPTA. - Yes it will, as long as you cant get home for the weekends (same as now)

    2. The tax back op deployment payment is paid with the loss of LSA / LSSA. - No it isn't


    Probably should have posted the short answer first, but it wouldnt have been as much fun or increased my pathetic post count by much
     
  13. JSP 752 Ch 5 section 1 para 05.0103, e - Qualifying Separation.

    (1) on temporary duty for a period in excess of 9 days and are unable to spend a minimum period of 24 hours at their duty station, family home or permanent residence within a weekend (or period of time off in lieu) due to the nature or location of the temporary duty.

    If there is no entitlement to this then the next may apply.

    JSP 752 Ch 5 Section 2 - Get You Home Travel.

    Para 05.0211 - Temporary assignments eligibility

    a. The temporary assignment location is within the same theatre.

    b. They are not in receipt of LSA.

    Giving out correct information will actually lower your post count :lol:
     
  14. Thanks to all.
