I am new to this forum... and i am trying to do some tracking on my ReEnlistment bonus. I am with the ARNG for Indiana, and I re-upped overseas. I signed in April, 08 , my ets was 01/25/09, I havn't received my bonus yet and am having no luck with my local finance, or my unit for that matter, i was tagged to this unit to deploy and I am stuck with them for another few months. I just want to see how it's coming, when it's coming, or even if it's coming. How can I check on my bonus to see if it is going through, I should have seen it already...right? Any help is appriciated. Thanks
I switched over from the active Army to the SELRES this year, I signed my contract on the 3rd of February 2009. I received a $15,000 Prior service bonus for six years. I was wondering when I would receive a bonus payment. Does the Army Reserve have a system to track when the bonus was processed?
I am not dealing with a re-enlistment bonus, but an enlistment bonus. It has been 132 days since i returned from Basic/AIT and i still have not received my bonus. I am not getting a whole lot of cooperation from the unit Administrator. does anyone have any ideas? Please help!!!!

If you submitted all the proper paperwork for your enlistment bonus and your S-1 processed it, just ask to put in a pay inquiry. If finance replies back that they never received the paperwork, then re-submit a copy of your enlistment contract (DD Form 4/1, 4/3, Annex B, and MOS orders).

I filled out a pay inquiry on the January BA and in early March, late February, it was still on thier desk. I have called DFAS, they have no record of an inquiry or any notes on the account. The only thing that I know to do now is file an IG complaint per my recruiter.
My husband reenlisted while he was on his tour in Iraq last year. His ETS was March 4, 2009. We have been trying to find out when we will get the bonus b/c we were originally told it would be in Feb. His pay NCO said that his paperwork says "Overdue" in red at the top but we have had no luck with pay branch on the issue. Can anyone tell me how we go about finding out when it will be paid?

I reenlisted March 11, and all the paperwork was submitted early on the 12th. My LES shows my new ETS date, and there is even a message at the bottom congratulating me for reenlisting. However, I called DFAS and they show no record currently of a critical skill lump sum bonus for my account. I am somewhat concerned that they can change my ETS date instantly but show no signs of a bonus, and I am always concerned when the army gets what they want, but do not reciprocate in the same amount of time. Also, I have had several friends receive their SRB's within five days. Is DFAS just a mess currently, or is this a legitimate concern on my part? Thanks.
Maybe I wasn't clear on "and available" ... do you have the ability to track this Soldier's bonus?
When I was full time Guard, I used to have access, but I am now Regular Army so my access was revoked. His Readiness NCO and/or USPFO military pay personnel should be able to register for access easily.
