reenlistment bonus how long does it take

I just reenlisted in the National Guard 30 May. My original ETS date was today (9 June). I am set to leave for a deployment 5 July, and was hoping to receive this reenlistment bonus before I leave. I notice some desparity in the amount of time it takes, I was hoping there was a way I can check with DFAS to grab a better idea when I should receive this bonus. Anybody know of any way I can get more info??
ok so i just re-enlisted on october 20th 2008 on my last day of my initial contract and i was wandering how long do i have to wait for my bonus to kick in or when will i receive it. my paper work was done on that very same day i beleive and my admin nco says it was turned in so how its nov 7th andim stillwaiting for it. i was told only 3 weeks but im sure 3 weeks has already came up so can someone help me track down this or help me somehow cause im kinda worried about this. im in the national guard in MN and again its a re-enlistment bonus.

I am a Specialist 92A and just completed my 3rd year. I reupped on 1/13/09. My ETS date was 1/26/09. I'm still waiting for the other half of my original bonus and my new bonus. Will I get them together? Do I have to remind someone that my original bonus is due? How long should this all take?
When you say "original bonus" are you referring to your ENLISTMENT bonus? If so, bring your contract to finance so they can input it in their system.

Also, for your reenlistment bonus, you should have received that by now. PM me your SSN and I'll check the status.

Your original ETS was 2009? If this is the case, you may have already fell out of the finance system because your ETS orders may have been submitted to finance.

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.
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! Confused 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.
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.
