No pay or bounty till June.

#1
Right, I've been patient, I've been calm, JPA is a new system, it will take time to get going and for the operator's to be fully conversant with it.
However, I found out this evening that my unit is not going to recieve any pay or bounty until June. This really is taking the piss. Quite a few blokes rely on that money coming in.
Is there anybody else in the same situation?
Are they going to refund the bank charges incurred when blokes go overdrawn, as some are already?
Any thoughts/advice?

Is that the hole of the battalion or just ure company the lads that were on Herrick have had there bounty's back in aprill

From what I can tell the Battalion has had there bounty, but don't know about pay. I'm posted out to the RTC now, and noone, from the CO down has got there money. Disgraceful really. They'd be the first to moan if we stopped turning up for training, coz we had no pay.
I had a blank pay check to, really helpful, thank you.
Some of the guys had money go in, only to have it taken straight back out again!
I'll give them till June, and then if nothing happens I'll have to consider other action - just not sure what.....

Look on Army net at your JPA pay sheets.

The NRPS at your location will have had to manually input all of the data, and if there was 1 small mistake then the whole lot is dumped as 'Does Not Compute!'

It will come through, but no idea when. Some of the Regs with us havent been paid yet either!

Your staff are useless. Simple as.

(Bounties have thrown up a few issues however and JPAC can't seem to come up with an answer as to why)

uoykcuf21 everyone got a blank pay statement, it was a "welcome to JPA"


It will come through on the last working day of the month when your staff finally work it out

can any one tell me how we are gonna get paid as TA

i have been informed that you will work a month then get paid at the end of the next month instead of the middle of the next month like we normally do

unsure how this works though cause its not like a civvie job to me

i work a month then got paid at end of that month for work carried out for the last 8 years i have been paid monthly & never got worked 2 months before getting paid also only worked a month then got paid at end of month when i was mobilised

any help appreciated cheers watto

Mate, try and punctuate, it makes your posts easier to read. :)
Yeah, on the old system we got paid on or around the tenth of each month. Allegedly with this new system, it was going to be towards the end of each month (25th?) but as you can see, I'm not in a position to confirm this. :(

Last working day of the month like the regs now, the date around the 25th is when the pay roll is processed - you have up untill about 19.00 on the day before that to give in your paysheets in theory.

So if you work for the first week of June and give in your paysheet before the (say) 24th, you'll get paid on the 30th June (or 29th since 30th is a Sat).
However, if you work the 26th of June, you'll get paid that on the last working day of July.

From this month on its all tri-service standardised apparently. Probably because by keeping hold of your pay until the end of the month they get more interest, and its probably cheaper to do it all in one big go instead of different ones since it's a civvy company.

Gents,
Your pay clerks are sh1te. I havn't missed a pay slot and my bounty went through at the end of April. This is not to show off, everyone in the TA should be paid for what they do in a timely mannor. From time to time people use the excuse that you shouldn't rely on TA money. Crap, if you work for it you should be paid at the first opportunity. Do not accept excuses from admin/pay staff they should make sure you get paid, just as you have to man the guns/stag on/man the net etc etc.

The "pay staff", as so eloquently put are not shite, I think they have had at most 2.5 days trg for this new system, how would any one cope with a change of working practices - with so little formal help. I have seen them working extremely long hours to ensure this goes as smoothly as possible. Much of what is happening to pay at the moment is pretty hit and miss for the TA from what I have seen. You should be aware that the team trying to turn this around are also working extremely hard - no I am not part of the JPA pay role before you ask. Many of the problems are a migration issue, not an input issue - whilst not helping the individual, it does explain to a degree why this has happened. By the way I also agree (not with all the comments) with "forniup", that if you earn the money you should expect it on time. If you are affected by bank charges it is always worth while staffing a claim via the CoC to ask for them back - admin staff are normally more than willing to help if this is the case. A case will have to be staffed via the CoC and may take time, and you will need your bank statements.

Quite right forniup, one of the WO2's from our place rang up Glasgow to enquire (inquire?) about the location of his money, and was told that he shouldn't rely on his TA pay to survive! But we all know people in our units that do, and I don't see a problem with that, if it's justified then crack on.
Gotta love bureaucracy!
I'm not sure the issue we're having is at Unit level, the PSAO is on the case (he's got no choice when the CO hasn't been paid!), more likely further up the CoC (Brigade? we are an RTC).
I'm not really moaning (maybe a tiny bit!), I just want what I've earnt, not to much to ask is it?!
