For Soldiers Chaptering out of the U.S. Army:


I am aware that:


1.  If I am indebted to the U.S. Government, my pay and allowances will be put in accrual and my pay options will stop (i.e. direct deposit).  I am also aware that my allotments will stop with the exception of involuntary support (garnishment), child support, and insurance allotments.


2.  When my pay is suspended and I wish payment, a DA Form 2142 requesting my end of month pay must be signed by my commander and submitted to finance on a monthly basis by my PAC along with a memorandum stating that I have at least 30 days prior to my separation.  I also realize that I will receive NO payment within 30 days of estimated discharge.


3.  If this chapter action is disapproved, and my pay is in suspense, I realize that I must notify the Debt Management Section by memorandum from my commander.
