You SHOULD Have A Full Pay By Now

I’m getting quite a few comments and emails from people who have only received one pay deposit for the 15 April 2011 pay period.  That is definitely not right!  First, check your bank account and make sure it didn’t get missed.  (Happens to the best of us.)  If it surely isn’t there, then check with your finance people tomorrow to see what has happened.  They can’t fix a mistake if they don’t know about it!

      Maria, please make sure you did not get an additional deposit. After that, you can either ask your husband to check with his finance people or wait until the end-of-month LES come out early next week.

    The President and Congress said, “No increase in Federal Income Tax.” Yet, since the first of the year my AF retirement pay was reduced by another 2% withholding tax. WHY?????????

      Oscar, withholding reverted to 2008 levels with the Making Work Pay credit expired at the end of 2010. It isn’t a new tax, but a return to the previous tax rate. Hope that helps!
