I was checking how much I'll get paid this Friday when I noticed extra money from a "CD Sign On Bonus" but I literally wavied my sign on bonus when I signed the contract for Schneider to pay for my schooling. Should I mention it to my DBL? confused.gif

I'm sure if I don't, it'll come back to bite me. rofl-1.gif

I'd say yes better safe than sorry. Don't spend a dime till you figure out what's going on with it. That's what I would do at least.

Yeah, I'm planning to call them in the morning to ask about it. I'm not complaining if they decided to give me the bonus, otherwise I lost nothing since I wasn't supposed to get it.

I'm doing pretty good,some mistakes here and there. I currently average around 1500-2000 miles a week(I got 2500 my first week out, paid miles but driven miles was a little more), they normally keep me busy as long as you set your NAT(next available time) correctly, I always have a pre assignment by the time I'm done with my current one. I've only had to wait around once so far, I was in New York and they couldn't find anything that I could pickup that day, so I had to wait around until Monday morning but got paid layover pay.

Congrats, I would definitely save the correspondence to and from, as a way to possibly lessen the blow later, if someone determines it was a mistake. I have been in the military far to long to not always remember, DFAS makes a mistake and over pays you, it comes out faster than you can imagine.

I went over 6 months with no pay, due to an overpayment. Way longer than it would take to repay, but I changed duty stations, and they lost my pay records in between.
