It was deposited DLA and all pay except (advance pay) 3 days prior to the day we told ipac we were leaving which was 3 days after he checked out. They told us when we filed for advance pay it would be dragging (this takes up to 30 days for processing) and I arranged the move and everything less than a week prior to TMO moving our stuff due to delayed orders from recuiting school. We got it maybe 2 weeks from the day I went to IPAC, but she made me sign a piece of paper acknowledging there could be a 30 day delay.
Curiosity. How long ago did he go to ipac to fill out the paperwork? I'm trying my best to remember if there was a "x amount bussiness days to recieve it" dla, per diem etc. I know it was up to 30 days for advance pay, though for sure.
I feel like it was 8 or 10 bussiness days. Most "normal" orders that's not an issue, but the way they do recruiting orders now has really messed up from things (from career jammers and ipacs mouth not mine, though I can def say it was a headache for us)
I don't know if this is the same, but when we were doing our recruiting money stuff, there were things that were filled out wrong and thank goodness he called almost everyday, they would not have called. They have to many people to deal with.It was happening to lots of people. We got it a week before we left. My point is don't be afraid to check mid way maybe to make sure it's processing, for anyone.
It took us over 2 and half months after moving. They kept telling us something was wrong with the paperwork, or the guy doing our paperwork was on leave...blah, blah, blah...finally we just started calling them about 3 times a day to check and they had it done on the 3rd day of our calling. Don't just think they are 'working on it', call and check or you can slide through the cracks.
I'd probably personally go into IPAC, and have someone pull your paperwork, and look it over, to make sure something is wrong with it (like people above mentioned) I hated calling, BUT the lady that did all my husband's stuff at IPAC gave me her name and number to speak to her directly, so that made things a little easier to call instead of pop in, but I know the day my husband got back he did go in basically to double check I did everything right (since I was the one who completed all the paperwork, and got signatures etc)
We got it 2 days before we left, BUT then had total issues after we got to our new duty station.
They checked his pay because they said he didn't rate it. Then we got another check for it again because they said that he did rate it, and then a month later checked his pay again because there was one thing that didn't get signed by someone else, then 2 weeks later got it back and the mileage pay. It was a mess.
I checked our account earlier and money posted today so it will be available tomorrow.. So 48-72 hours after my husband checked out. But hey at least they we are for sure getting it and had no huge issues!
On a good note we passed our final inspection with Lincolin and don't owe them a penny!! :)
