Soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade who might be eligible for special combat pay have until December 18 to apply online to receive the special benefit, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

“With this special benefit, known as ‘stop loss pay,’ the money either comes automatically or you must ask for it. In the latter case, there are hundreds of thousands of troops who have never done the simple online application for the money. There is now a final hard deadline of December 18 to apply,” Senator Bivins said.

For more information, go to www.defense.gov/stoploss. Eligible members can also visit their specific service’s Web site and submit their application on-line. " />
