I was just wondering how long it takes for the government to pay once they receive all the paperwork. I am guessing 30-60 days which is normal for the government. Just didn't know if anyone had any experience with this. The first time I sent my paperwork it magically got lost, but I am not surprised. The military makes you work to get the incentives that they offer you to join. They just don't tell you all the BS you have to go through to get it done or to get what they told you can have.
