SOLDIER NEEDS HELP

I’ve been In the military for 10 years serving my country to the best of my ability. As a result of my duties, I went through a medical board that has ruled that I am no longer fit to retain on active duty and I am being medically separated from the military. My exit date is November 20th of this year and I am working daily to prepare myself for it. I have ran into an issue though, Due to a clerical error I have been without a paycheck since the 15th of September. If you ever been involved with the government you know how paperwork gets misplaced or delayed. Well this problem has met me at my front door, as I said before I’ve been without a check from the military since the 15th of September. When it first happened, I spoke with my admin personnel to find out what happened. We worked together to get the situation resolved, by sending up the necessary documents through the proper channels. At this point, I’ve continued telling myself that this is a temporary situation that can be handled and situated very soon. I continued to go to my classes at my college, trying to say focused on my academic career even though the stress of not having money for gas to get to and from classes. I told myself that I just needed to stay calm and think about solutions not more problems. Some of the same things that I tell people all the time. I was clearly being tested, cause I got a call from my S-1 and they said that my paperwork got to them on the 2nd of October and that they would get to it as soon as possible. Well the days went by and I was checking in regularly with my S-1 trying to see if they had heard from our finance.. they still didn’t hear anything. At this time, I am a bit stressed cause my rent and utilities has come due plus other bills. But I talked to my leasing office and told them that I was given the 10th as a day that my pay would be processed and possibly paid. Well the 10th came and I still wasn’t paid, rather I was told that it wouldn’t be until the 13th that Friday that I would see anything. So I asked my leasing office to please extend it back and called all the other bills asking for the same extension. At this point, I am really stressed still hoping that something will work out.
Friday came and I am still in the same situation. To make matters worst, I just missed another pay check. So I went through different resources that the military gives for loans and even civilian loans but unfortunately I was denied.
I spoke with my S-1 and asked them what the the outcome of my request for casual pay was, and it too hadn’t went through. I was told that Due to the time when my paperwork came through and the cycle of pay I wouldn’t get paid until the 20th of October.
So I had to call my leasing office and begged them to extend my rent back until the 20th. They extended it, but told me that they can’t extend it anymore past that. I would have to vacate my apartment if there is no payment on the 20th.
I continued to reach out to my S-1 asking about the casual pay request that sent up, I spoke with them today and I was told that not only will I not get paid on the 20th, but I wouldn’t receive my paycheck until the 1st of the month and I was denied the casual pay.
So this is the reason I am requesting help! I am desperately needing help through this hardship. I know that it will work itself out, but in the meanwhile I am asking that you please help me in anyway you feel in heart to help. Thank you in advance! I appreciate your love. ❤️
