After several extensions the newest and possibly last opportunity to apply for Stop-Loss payments is set for March 18, 2011.
Additional information from the Department of Defense may be found at http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2010/0710_stoploss/
Essentially if a service member was not allowed to separate or retire – – the service member’s service was involuntarily extended between September 11, 2001, and September 30, 2009, the service member is eligible to apply for this pay.
Why do it? The government has authorized a payment of $500 per month / partial month for your involuntary service extension.
Please see https://www.militaryveteranlawyer.com/2010/02/stop_loss_payments_available_t.html for a contact list of the services.
Do Not Delay, apply before the Deadline passes!
