  • 50/50 Bonus question

    Ok my friend is having problems getting the other half of her enlistment bonus at her 3 year anniversary. When she enlisted she got the $20,000 50/50 bonus. She's been calling and calling and calling every place she can possibly think of trying to get an answer as to why she hasn't gotten it and no one is returning calls or emails. She finally received this email as to why she hasn't gotten the bonus. Is this a fixable problem? Why would they have her in a 92A slot when she's the only 74D in her unit.

    The bonus is stalled out because you are not in the correct slot on the UMR.
    They have you in a 92A slot when you show to be a 74D. Due to regs and laws
    behind the bonus payments, they will not be able to override that.

    It's fixable, but only by moving her back to a 74D slot on the UMR. She should take the email up her chain of command so they can fix it.

      The SSG is correct. After you bring the letter to your 1SG, it will be a quick fix. But...stay on them and make sure it gets done. Soon after, contact your education/incentives NCO (at state HQ) and let him or her know that your unit has adjusted the UMR ( Para/Line ).
