(insert four letter word) finance!

LES are out and DHs says he is getting 1/2 his paycheck and owes over 7K to the military. I have NO clue how this could have happened and when we went to finance they werent sure either. For now they told us to come back tomorrow so they can call DFAS and possibly get an answer. This couldnt be happening at a worse time. We are about to PCS and are supposed to start our leave & travel on Friday.

 I heard if DH has allotments then they have to be paid before any owed debt is taken from the pay. Is this true? I would like to set up allotments to another checking account to help cover us on the paycheck for the 15th. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Re: (insert four letter word) finance!

  • DH worked with a guy that this happened to on two separate LES's, well, kind of.  When he went to finance and they called DFAS they found out it was their bad and set him up with money for the essentials (groceries, rent, etc.).  Hopefully this is the case for you.
    ETA: For us they forgot to take BAH out and we really did owe. Fortunately we noticed and had saved the money. And another co-worker was given higher BAH for a different duty station than where he was. He had to pay that back as well. I certainly hope this is not your issue.

  • Don't forget that you can always go to your ACS (or Fleet & Family Support) for monetary assistance if Finance can't immediately rectify the problem.

    AER is an amazing program. I think we'll be ok since my pay was correct, but it does effect our PCS travel plans
