Timeline for DFAS

Good morning everyone,
I was approved for CRSC 70% (Air Force) on December 2, 2019. I know that an audit will need to be done for the back pay which I also know could take many months. My questions are when might I receive my first monthly payment for the current amount and when might DFAS post anything on the RAS or CRSc statement for My Pay? I am not sure if my first payment would be end of January or if because I was approved on the second of December there was enough time to make the end of December payday.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Here is a report from last month:

Approval Letter - Sep 10, 2019
First Payment - November 1, 2019
Audit Start- October 6, 2019
Retro Statement on mypay (updated mid-day) November 14, 2019- paydate scheduled for November 19th.

You can use the search feature at the upper right of the page to find more. That is the method I used.

Ron, Thanks for the reply. I just used the search key and was able to find some other examples as well. I am still hopeful to see something this month however I understand it could be longer than that. Who knows, maybe Santa will surprise me. LOL
