My recruiter offered me the SLRP incentive when I decided I'll commission with the Army but for some reason, they changed my recruiter weeks before I signed the contract. The day I signed the contract, I asked for the recruiter to make sure that the SLRP is incorporated in my contract. He told me that the SLRP will be incorporated in my "Officer Contract." He even asked for my PIN and printed out my loan records and incorporated it in my contract. He said it might expedite the process.
I found out through my officer recruiter that there is no such thing as an "officer contract!" When I talked to my enlisted recruiter, he told me that he will send an "exception to policy" letter. In the exception to policy letter, the recruiter stated that he's requesting the "exception to policy" because he was not aware that the SLRP will be in effect the next day. The request got denied!
My issue is that I know there was an SLRP in place. It may not be the same amount as the day after I signed the contract but there was one because my other recruiter talked to me about it and i looked at it the night before! Second, If there really was no SLRP on the day I signed, why did he just not tell me that instead of telling me it will be incorporated on my OCS contract!
HQ is allowing me to file an appeal to their decision through the Army Board of Corrections. I don't know how to go about acquiring evidence on this. Can anyone advice??
