Bear Bonus Question
 Login/Join
 

posted
I recently extended and successfully completed MOS training via the bear program.

After the training I signed a 6 year contract and was paid the said bonus for this time. This was roughly a year ago and I have since been paid the bonus.

My question is if I put in for an application MOS and get picked up for it will there have to be any kind of repayment for this bonus?

Yes, you will have to pay it back. Basically, you did not complete the terms of the contract.

SO how does this work when I have 2 years left on my contract and re-enlist. I will in turn cancel the remaining 2 years left on the current contract and receive a new bonus (hypothetically) with the new contract.

Also I do know for a fact that if I was to put in either a Warrant or an OCS packet that I would not have to recoup any of the bonus. Which is why I am asking.

Not necessarily true that you would have to repay. Which MOS are you looking to apply? If you look at the milper messages for the reclass instructions, it'll sometimes tell you whether a bonus will be recouped or not. I reclassed to 25E a year ago, then looked into 35Q, and at the time of application the bonus recoupment was being waived. Just check into it with a career counselor.

Also, look up DA PAM 611-21, it's the MOS smartbook, it'll tell you the exact requirements to reclass into every MOS. They have bonus requirements in there for certain MOS's.
