Air Force Extends Stop-Loss Pay – Again

March 23, 2012 | Terry Howell

From this Week’s Military Report:

Eligible Airmen, veterans and their beneficiaries now have until midnight Oct. 21, 2012 to apply for retroactive stop loss special pay due to a recently authorized extension. Servicemembers eligible for the benefit include active, retired and former members as well as guard and reserve component members who served on active duty while their enlistment or period of obligated service was involuntarily extended, or whose eligibility for separation or retirement was suspended as a result of stop loss. Airmen may download a stop loss claim application at the Retroactive Stop Loss Special Pay website. Applicants who were serving in the Reserve or Guard may apply by visiting vPC-GR via the Air Force Personnel Services website.
