Here are some bullets about the recently released pay plan from the Medical Corps Chief’s Office:
- Eligible members have until 3 Dec 2022 to be able to submit requests effective for 1 Oct 2022 without having to use the retroactive templates. Any request submitted and dated on, or after, 4 Dec 2022 for an effective date more than 30 days prior will be required to use the retroactive templates.
- BUMED cannot guarantee pay before end of year tax cutoff for an acceptance letter received on, or after, 1 December 2022. If received after 1 December for an effective date in calendar year 2022, and it does not get paid in tax year 2022, then the member could receive two payments in tax year 2023.
