  • $20,000.00 Bonus: How/When do I receive this money.

    It is my understanding that I'm going to receive my Enlistment bonus following OSUT training. Will the bonus be deposited directly to my bank account or do I have to call someone?

        I was told that it would be put in my account 30 days after I finish school.
        Don't know for sure thats how it works but thats what they told me at MEPS.

          I've been told it's half upon completion of basic(or AIT, can't remember which), and half on your 3 year anniversary. Could vary from state to state though. Shouldn't it say that in your contract? Did you read your contract?

            Depends on your MOS. If it is a critical MOS (your state's most needed) then you get a lump sum after your AIT training. All training must be complete. If it isnt critical or specialty then its half after AIT and half after your 3 year anniversary. I suggest a 529 type plan to stow away a good portion of the 1st half so you dont blow it, then combine the two in 3 years. Thats a house!

              This is what I was told too. But like LivingIt said I joined a critical MOS (MP)

                Critical [U]unit[/U] is lump sum. Critical MOS, not so much.

                    see, now i was under the understanding that my recruiter would put whatever paper work in to say that i finished my training so i can get my bonus. i am counting on that to get a car as mine was vandelized over block leave. i left ait on the 20th of february. . . so does my recruiter have to do anything or does it just get deposited?

                        Bonuses under the old (ended yesterday) SLRP policy should be paid IAW your contract. The first (or all for critical unit / mos depending on what it says on YOUR contract) [COLOR="Red"][B][I][SIZE="5"]SHOULD[/SIZE][/I][/B][/COLOR] be in your account direct deposit in about 30 days after you complete IADT (AIT). Key word is "should". It is your money!! You can have your recruiter check "iMARC" to sheck on your payment. It is your money!! Make sure you get with your recruiter when you get back from AIT. you may have paper work that he needs to get to RSP to start that payment.

                          Check your contract to see if you got your bonus. Some people have gotten their bonus withing 3 weeks after AIT some as long as 6 months. After you come back from basic go to your RSP, whoever did your paper work there should be able to push the bonus through unless ur told otherwise. Some people work faster than others so bare with it or get on top of them. Our Specialist over at my old RSP usually gets our bonuses in 3-5 weeks. God bless her :)
