    I know my son still hasn't been paid. Last I heard was when -Bull- posted that it appeared that it had been approved but also said there was no telling how long it might be until the money was dispersed.

    Before taxes, my total came out to a few thousand. My orders were for a much longer period than the average CULP cadet, though.

    Some people are reporting they've already been paid and some have been overpaid. Confirm what you're due. If the Army overpays you, they'll likely deduct from upcoming stipends.

    I got an email from the HRT at my school today about CULP pay (perfect timing). She said that we were all overpaid and to expect a deduction, so from the sounds of it it could be for all CULP cadets. We, in this case, referring to all of the CULP cadets at my school, it might not mean every CULP cadet was overpaid.

    I went to look at MyPay on the DFAS site to try and see when they might be paying those of us who have not been paid yet. My CULP pay is on there and DFAS says it will be deposited on Dec. 1st, so looks like your son heard a good rumor, k2rider.

    To the parents, if your cadets don't have a MyPay account setup yet, it would probably be helpful. They'll be able to access all of their LES statements online and see what has been deposited and what is coming. If they haven't received CULP pay yet, I bet there is a LES on MyPay that has the amount they will be paid and when the check will be deposited just like there was for me.

    Several of the cadets on my sons CULP trip were posting they got paid and like already mentioned, appeared to have been overpaid. They had a 31 day mission would should be "about" $1100 and a couple received over $2000. I have already warned my son to put anything over $1000 into a saving account just in case the Army comes asking for it.

    I meant to post this the other day, but forgot. I did get paid for CULP on the 1st at midnight, but all of 4 hours later they took all of it back. I was actually underpaid, but at this point I really don't care. I'd just like that $3000 back.

    This is the email the head of CULP at Knox sent out about the issue:

    hopefully no cadets are bouncing checks because they thought they had enough money in their account to cover holiday spending...:eek:

    Well looks like I got all of that back just now. Who knows what will happen with it, at this point I'm just ready to be done dealing with cadet pay issues.

    I blame all of this on the University of North Georgia.*




    *(Sarcasm. They have the contract for CULP)

    My son's money was all taken away as well and yes, he did bounce a check. he went to Wells Fargo and explained what happened and they refused to credit back the overcharge fee (or whatever you want to call it). Needless to say, he'll be doing his banking elsewhere in the very near future.

    So here is a kick in the shorts... DS CULP pay was taken back like everybody elses BUT the deposit and take back included a portion of his regular monthly stipend. What a cluster! :thumbdown:
