Receipt of promotion orders while in a PCS status

Given my current grade I should probably have an answer for this but I don't:

I was promoted on 1MAY2014. That day I PCS'd overseas. My new rank is currently reflected on my ERB. Speaking with HRC I was told to expect my promotion orders to be sent to my losing unit. Has anyone experienced this before, and if so, how long of a process is it to go about obtaining my orders. My main concern is ensuring that I update my ID Card in a timely manner. Thank you.

I am in the same boat as you, but I am still here at my current duty station until 8 May 14 have to be in Alaska on 9 May 14. But according to my unit there are done with me, since I signed out even though I am still here so to speak. They said you will be pinned at your new duty station when you in process.

Get with your new unit and they should take care of that pretty quick. If it's already showing in your ERB, you should be able to just go to the DEERS office and get a new CAC, they can see in the system what is your rank.

When i got promoted, i was deployed and attached to a diffrent unit. My new unit and my old unit were tracking my promotion, and i received promotion orders from both units, lol...
OK. I have a question? I was supposed to been promoted to SGT as of 1 May but was not because I was in-trans to a new duty station. There are no orders as of yet. Who is responsible to cut the orders? According to this: Section XV
Task: Processing Promotions Upon Arrival at Gaining Organization (In-Processing)
3-36. Rules
a. During in-processing, the officer in charge of promotions will determine whether the Soldier qualifies for promotion or will be added to the recommended list.
b. If otherwise qualified, Soldiers on the recommended list who meet a promotion point cutoff score while in transit will be promoted during in-processing.
c. Recommended list status must be verified. Verification requires a promotion packet by-name list and cutoff scores.
d. When the month of promotion is later than that in which the Soldier first qualified and delay is solely due to being intransit, the DOR and effective date of promotion will be the date the promotion would have occurred had the Soldier not been in an in-transit status.
e. The PROM will have special instructions on the promotion instrument indicating the promotion was delayed solely due to the Soldier being in an in-transit status.
3-37. Steps
The steps for processing promotions upon arrival at a gaining organization upon in-processing are listed in table 3-17, below.
Table 3-17. Processing promotions upon arrival at a gaining organization (in-processing)
Step
Work center
Required action
1 IOPR Verify Soldier is on a valid recommended promotion list and eligible for promotion or integration onto a list.
2 Integrate Soldier to recommended list if he or she has not met a promotion point cutoff score.
3 Submit applicable transaction to integrate Soldier on the recommended list or promote Soldiers who met, or exceeded a cutoff score while in transit, whose names appear on the by-name list.
4 IOPR Submit applicable transactions to update Soldier's promotion points. My new new duty station should cut my orders correct. Although I signed out of my old unit on 21 April and signed in with my new unit on 9 May.
Yes HR I am a MEDDAC Soldier. Replacment said they were going to take care of it which they never did. Also new leadership are just going with it, they have opinions on who should be doing this, but letting HR calling the shots. I had shown them the list for May. Everyone is trying to pass the buck so to speak. I agree it is not rocket science.
