Due to circumstances beyond the control of** Sig Sqn, ** Sig Regt and 2 Sig
Bde, the JPA pay system deadline for Jan was moved early again without
informing units. This means that attendance in Jan will not be paid in Feb,
but in March along with Feb attendance. Anyone who cannot pay their
mortgage / loans or cannot put food on the table for tiny Tim and his wooden
leg should contact PSAO in confidence and arrangements will be made.
This is obviously unacceptable incompetence by "JPA pay" YET AGAIN....I
repeat that it is nothing to do with any admin staff in the ****** TAC, do
not take it out on them, we can only hope that heads are being knocked
firmly together further up the chain.
Depends really, if you work say 10 days in Feb and you get it in before the cut-off date for feb and it's uploaded ok you'll get paid at the end of Feb (ie start of March).
If you miss the cut-off you'll get it at the end of March (ie start of April)
I took the TA to task for paying me a class 4 ptes Bounty instead of a class 1 NCOs rate. I withdrew my labour, the CO offered me a cheque and I told him thanks but I want my money not his. I skipped camp (sadly as I wanted to go back to germany) and did Brecon later when my pay was done properly. That was in 1988 and things dont change. The RSM had a fit when I showed him the poster we still had at the TAC, a Full time wage for a part time hobby. He demanded it be taken down. It stayed and in fact more of that ilk appeared. Typical TA takes the pish and gets away with it!
Many thanks Mongoose - that would explain things, and I suspected ithat would be the case, on account of me *sometimes* getting paid at the end of the month for that month's work.
Basically then I should resign myself to the fact that I can expect expect pay 1 month after the end of the month, because I suspect our admin staff at our company HQ have neither the capacity or the will to get anything in on time.
It still amazes me how many threads arise on this subject. Its been done to death.
How long have you been in SSI? Surely by now you should know. Or are you waiting for your first pay day? If thats the case it will be in your bank when it gets there. Hurry up and wait I think is the phrase.
If you've got a problem pass it up the chain of command. Or sign up to ArmyNet and check your pay statement online. It will tell you on there.
Why are TA folk still surprised by the abortion that is the pay system.
As Goku said, just treat it like a nice little bonus to your beer fund.
