Time is running out for those who qualify to receive their Stop Loss Special Pay. The deadline to claim it is Oct. 21, but less than half of the more than 145,000 people eligible have submitted claims.
It’s not a scam. And it’s not a joke. It’s YOUR money, so come get it.
Just in case you had forgotten, the 2009 War Supplemental Appropriations Act authorized retroactive stop loss special pay of $500 for every month or partial month served in stop loss status.
