I am having the same problem. I reenlisted on 17 March. The LES came out and they changed the ETS date but no bonus on the LES. I talked to finance today and they said they see nothing in their system. Could you please also assist with this well? I just want some clarification on whats going on thats all... My career counsleor said 7-10 business days and its day 9! I am active duty...
I reenlisted April 29. My current contract expires May 20. On the paperwork it says bonus becomes effective May 21 when my new contract starts. Does that mean I should have my bonus on that day because I don't see it on my LES and it is 6 days away. My ETS changed already and on my record portal the contract has already been uploaded and all my dates changed.
I re-enlisted on the 15th of May, and I have yet to see the bonus. My peers re-enlisted and said they saw their bonus in a week to two weeks or so. Also, I called DFAS and they said nothing is in the sysytem. What could be the problem or hold up?
They say that when the contract is uploaded that it should automatically be sent to DFAS for processing. I have still been waiting for almost 6 weeks now. I talked to my NCO that is in charge of all finance issues within my Reserve unit. He told me he called DFAS and that it was not showing in the system. He forwarded the contract directly to Indianapolis and they have to put it in manually. I am hoping that i see it soon because 6 weeks is a long time to wait.
Being in the reserves I can usually expect things to take forever, however when it comes to money that I need, I get a little anxious.
My ETS was 24Jun2009 I reenlisted in January 2009. Another Sgt in my platoon reenlisted the same day as me, his ETS being in March, and he hasn't received his yet. I suspect I'll get mine some time in FY2011

im having the same problem. i had the Army call to service contract, so my contract stated i couldnt receive my bonus until after my active duty period. submitted the paperwork to my UA about 2-3 months ago, and been calling like crazy for updates, and nothing yet. any advice?
i am in the same boat i reenlisted a last month on the 25 of nov, i still havent recieved my bonus, my reenlistment officer told me &7 to 10 days, i called finance and they told me there was no paper work for my bonus, as well i called dfas and they told me the same thing. i asked my reenlistment officer about it today and he told me it was because the army is waiting for congress to vote on the military bill. ok? Plus i was wondering if a lower bonus comes out will my bonus be that amount? i mean i just renlisted for 6 more years. O and my new ETS date i already on my ERB and MYPAY, so i know the paper work was turned in
