After you've completed AIT, checked in with your unit, and gotten your paperwork sent off about how long does it take to get it? Also will it come by check or will it be direct deposited?

Direct deposit, as all your paychecks will be.

You get half upon completeing AIT, and, half upon
completeing your first enlistment successfully.

Gotta love them bonuses. I've been paid about $35,000 in bonuses over the past dozen years.

Thanks, but how long after the paperwork is submited by your unit could I expect it? I'm out of AIT and have checked into my unit BTW.

morbid question. Does getting killed qualify as successfully completing the first enlistment?

I assume then the bonus would be conveyed along with the survivor death benefit.

BT/AIT = May-Sept.

Joined Sept. before, and I got it direct deposited in Dec. Then, the 3rd year in Sept.

I wouldn't wish it on anybody but reading the thread did make me wonder. Buddy of mine was killed last year in the sand box.

Damn, takes 3 monthes? Seems the Amry is as slow as the IRS in cutting a check.

Are you AD/Reserve/Guard? For National Guard, my soldiers generally see their bonus by next pay period. It is all how fast your DD214 gets processed and take you out of IADT pay status.

Reenlisted 29 Jan, no bonus in the account yet.

I'm reserve and when my FSGT started the paperwork I believe I was still in IADT status (IADT = The large pool of SIT's right?)

Guard here, but my orders were a little screwed up and I went through most of BT/AIT/OSUT as an Active Duty soldier on paper.


And ya, about 3mos for the first one after AIT.

First Sergeant is 1SG btw. IADT is Initial Active Duty Training. Your pay is coded as such and at least with us, first step is to get you out of that status. Then your bonus is paid out. I have turned around a first bonus payment to one of my Pvt's in 10 days. It took some work but hey its a new Private's pay! Always take care of soldiers pay!! I am a Recruiter so sometimes going out of chain is command is not a problem for me.

Thats a shame. When I assist a unit
with a Re-up it requires only the appropriate signatures and fax up
to the bonus group. Next pay date you got your lump sum payment.

When I received my bonus it was paid in this manner:

After successful completion of AIT, got it on the next paycheck.

Annually throughout the term of the enlistment.

These PVTs coming in have a nice bonus. For Guard the bonus
pays out $20k for 10 selected MOSs, and it is paid 50% after MOSQ,
2nd 50% in 3rd year or at end of 3 yr contract. Not bad huh.
