    Signing Bonuses

    Is it true that you are going to receive a signing bonus that you have to have 2 years of service before you receive the money

    I never actually received any bonus, but I beleive that they came out once a year, after the first year.

    Talk to your recruiter, or better yet, a disburser 3421 MOS.

    No, that's incorrect. I recieved a signing bonus and I recieved all of mine lump sum. Some bonuses, either signing or re-enlistment may be half now, the rest spread out over your tour.

    Either way , you do not need to have two years in before you get your bonus.

    Chumley,

    Actually, I was correcting Jebediah, but you can stand corrected too, if it makes you feel better!

    At this point in time, I will just push the floor for a while....to be sure I've got my bases covered.

    Ahhhhh....that's better.

    I didn't get mine until I had 6 months OJT - then it was one lump sum with taxes taken out of it.

    I got half of mine when I completed MOS school and the other half after 2 years in. I'd forgotten about it by that point, so it was nice to see the extra money as a good surprise.
