Lumber said:Back pay for what? You need two years in rank to get promoted to LT(N). Soooo... if you pass your board "within" two years, you wouldn't be promoted to Lt(N) yet, so what would you be getting back paid for?
Now lets say you graduated and were promoted to SLT on June 1st 2010, but didn't start training about ship until September 1st. If you pass your NOPQ board on September 1st 2012, the would you get back paid to June 1st 2012? Good question. OM?
No. You get promoted when all the requirements for promotion are met. The only backpay you get is from the time you get eligible for promotion until the paperwork goes through, usually only a couple weeks. Pretty much this exact thing just happened to me.
