Yeah, my discharge paperwork was signed on the 12th of this month, same as my original DD214 that I got when I was put on the TDRL (it was signed on the 12th of March 2015). In both cases, my EAS was on the 30th of March and now, September. When I went on TDRL, my retirement pay hit on the 1st of April (2015). So I'm assuming that getting my severance on the 1st of October makes sense.
DFAS knows you need the money so they are actually pretty quick about it.
yes my separation date was 30 Aug 17 my severance pay hit 31 Aug 17 usually its not long as of lately everyone I know have been getting severance within 5 days of separation date not transition leave but actual separation date
