Payday

Can anyone let me know when Nov pay is expected to hit bank accounts? Or is it on the last day of the month as per the regular army? (In which case I still haven't been paid a substantial amount owed...)

Mine appeared on my online statement on Saturday and was due to land today. According to our clerk it should always be in your bank account on the first working day of the month.

ta pay(1st 2 weeks of the current month and the last 2 of the previous month) is processed on the last day of the month and appears in your bank on the 1st of the month. if the 1st falls on the weekend like this month it appears on the 1st working day, like today, if your having pay issues see your rao

Why? You're better off ringing JPAC yourself. This all your RAO can do (You also have to be present when he makes the call) At least you'll get a reasonably straight answer as to the cause of the problem and a resolution date when you can expect to see the cash you can hold them to, rather than the usual 'It's Glasgow's fault' and 'You might get it next month' you'd probably get from your unit.

Has many on here been overpaid? my unit was all overpaid 2 months on the trot by up to 3 times what we should have got.I owe £900 yet still have not been told officially that i've been paid too much. some that left months ago were paid so whats the chance of the money being returned.also out of 30 TA units ours was the only one to report that this happened,do those other units honestly think that no one would catch on? the first time we were overpaid by £170,000!!!

F.A.B.

This is going to be really popular with employers :roll:

Make the RAO earn his pay (hint: sure as hell it goes in on time every time).

How would the TA like it if I signed in and started dealing with administrative issues from work?

Sorry MSR JPA is self administration for Regular and TA alike. JPAC will not give your unit admin any info about your pay unless you are present to hand over your 'memorable information' etc

So in short what's the point in having a three way phone call with your RAO in the loop when 9 times out of 10 an individual can sort it out himself.

Fcuk me, I've been fcuking paid! I'm so used to hearing 'it will be all sorted at the end of this month' for the past 6 months, that now its finally happened, I'm actually in shock!

Drinks on Hugh...

I am still waiting for several hundred £s pay due me since May! Several attempts over the months to involve my PSAO have resulted in nothing., apart from being told to stop asking about it, as it will be resolved when it is resolved (seems asking once a month if I'm going to get my back pay is not allowed...).

It would be nice if I had the option to sort it out myself, but have still not been given a JPA account...

Great system, isn't it. Absolutely responsive to the needs of its users....

JPA is a pile of S**te and from what you've said about you're PSAO I would be on the phone to JPAC in a shot. If you've got an Army number and have been paid anything at all since April, then you will have an account, if its not set up the monkeys that answer the phone are usually quite good at getting it sorted for you. Ring 'em explain your situation and see what they can do.Let's face it what have you got to loose? It's your money at the end of the day.

Been there, seen it, done that...

JPAC told me that if I couldn't log in, I would have to go via my unit staff i.e. my PSAO...

Also said that I should have had my logon details supplied months ago - if I haven't, I need to speak to my unit staff i.e. my PSAO...

Waste of bloody time - my DII account is there (I've seen it in the global address book) and has been since at least April but...

God, this is fun.

Sorry to hear that, not that I'm surprised. If I were you my next recourse would be a formal redress of grievance letter. It's surprising how quick things get sorted out once your CO, Brigade, Division and The Army Complaints People in Glasgow get involved.
Last year the TA made up a total of 10% of complaints dealt with in this manner. A little bird tells me that overall complaints have doubled this year and the TA will exceed 20% mostly due to JPA and pay issues.
