Hi i got promoted 10 months ago and still my pay has not been sorted out, My problem is that i am on the lower pay band where i shold be on higher, everytime i go to unit clerks i get fobbed of they tell me they sorting it and its down to JPA, just wondering if any one has any advice to help me get this sorted as i could really do with the back pay, also i have had quite a few bank charges in the last 10 months due to my pay not being sorted, am i entitled to claim these back??
Stevie, There is no excuse for your pay not being sorted in the ten months you have said, its not JPA but the bods using/learning the system that is at fault
The problem you have now is that Glasgow is on a mass move around period and cannot be contacted until 14 Jan 08 unless for major problems.... you may have a case. I suggest speaking to your Pl/Tp Comd and get him to get the ball rolling on your behalf asap and if you want it before Xmas it must be sorted before 1700hrs on the 14 Dec 07.
As to your overdraft charges, you have not lost money you have not received more money owed to you so in reality it is your fault for the charges..sorry
Sounds like you need to get them to send an JPA E021
Authorisation for Change to Main Trade for Pay ?? If you were TA it's a simple change for your career manager in a field but methinks for regulars it needs to be done at a higher level (ie SVPA)
However, having spoken to a guru recently there's been a bit of a fight over these since SVPA said it wasn't their job to action these and they haven't been bothering, but now it's sorted (guess what? It is your job!) and they've got a big stack to work through.
I transferred my service to the TA last April and have still not received a penny!!! A cheque has been in the post to me for 2 weeks now, however £1900 for 7 months back-pay in the post is no use until it gets to my bank account.
And a final insult from JPA was a sprog regimental number of 300*****, after 13 years with my old number!!! But rant is for another day.
YES, next year sounds about right. I'm no stranger to pay fookups, it took two years to sort out my promotion pay, paid as 2Lt, 1995-1998, but should have been paid as a Lt 1996-1998, two years back pay amounted (after tax etc) to £1849.01, so in the end a fookup ended up as a savings policy!!!
If someone can confirm that the E21 is the right thing to do, you can at least march into the RAO and tell them that's what needs to be done and you want to see them do it (you can get the form yourself if need be from here:
Like I said, someone has fooked up somewhere (probably in TRHA?) since you can keep your old number, although I'll admit that the ones we've recruited into the TA with former service (gappys etc) have vanished into cyberspace on hitting the magic "Upload to JPA" button
