    So I am on a 3 1/2 month tdy and just finished month 1. When I got here someone had screwed up my lodging so I got a 106 night non a letter....awesome I get to stay off base...I am supposed to get my first partial payment tomorrow but guess what that's not happening. I submitted my amendment into dts like day 3....still not approved by my home station. I have been on the phone with them the past two weeks and still nothing. So now I have to wait until may 15 to get my gtc paid and my tdy pay. :mad:

    not right now because most of the savings is getting drained on closing costs in may...DE closing costs ftl

    they said that it didnt matter if it was 30 days late, but its more of the TDY pay I want than the GTC paid off

    Last year it was taking 6-8 weeks for our guys to get paid and a 2 week TDY we would run up about $5,000 on our card. It got to the point nobody harassed us about paying it. Once your 60 days late it gets frowned upon but most E-4s dont have 5k sitting around to pay a travel card.

    When I came back from my 6 month TDY ( FL Deployment), my GTC had over $12K due to finance not paying what they were supposed to. I feel your pain.
