  1. Hi - asked this in RHQ but no reply so coming to the specialists for advice:

    all figures from jpa -
    Got out of reservist training 26/5/08 - pay upped substantially (~25%) to £14945.74
    upped 2.8% to 15364.31 next tax year (1/4/09)
    upped 2.77% to 15789.56 on 26/5/09 (so up to level 2 I guess)
    then on 1/4/10 there got 2% up to 16105.32. So presumably on lvl 3 by 26 of next month?

    couple of things -
    - My grade has been 'OR2 | OR MAIN | 01 since my jpa records began. Does that not change with levels (increments?)

    - Why two separate pay increases - one on my annual increment date (26 May) and one on new tax year?

    - looking at rates of pay for minions 2010/11, mine seems to fall short in annual terms. Or is this meant to be for reservists?

    eg Lvls 1-3 this year are: 17957, 17486 & 17015 respectively. Surely not that big a hike from previous years?

    let me know your thoughts and/or abuse

  3. It would appear that...

    all figures from jpa -
    Got out of reservist training 26/5/08 - pay upped substantially (~25%) to £14945.74 - Increase to Pte Level 1 on completion of trade training

    upped 2.8% to 15364.31 next tax year (1/4/09) - Increase in line with pay scale increases for 09/10

    upped 2.77% to 15789.56 on 26/5/09 (so up to level 2 I guess) - Annual increase to Pte Level 2 at IBD date

    then on 1/4/10 there got 2% up to 16105.32. - Increase in line with pay scale increases for 10-11

    So presumably on lvl 3 by 26 of next month? - Yes to Pte Level 3.

    The 26th May date will be your annual increase until such time sa you are promoted and then it will become your promotion.
     
  4. cheers for that, makes sense now - so reservists (16105.32) get a smaller annualised wage than reg counterpart (17486) then?

    Apologies if this is a bone question, just wondering if I got on a Herrick would I then get the regular amount? (my civvie wage is rubbish so not an issue)
     
  5. Yes Regulars are on higher salaries at the same equivalent band as their X-Factor is assessed at a higher %.

    Yes were you to deploy you would move on to the equivalent Regular salary for your pay band for the duration of your mobilisation.
