    Default Not a great thing just before the holidays...

    DH just was told by personnel (overseas) that because he hadn't filed the paperwork correctly, they're taking $1,000.00 out of his next paycheck.

    (Can someone say OUCH please?)

    All of the frugal stuff I've been doing to get us to a better place in the long run has to be done in earnest in the next month or two because of this. We'll be having a really thin set of holidays too.

    He thinks he may have a work around that may solve the problem. (It's refiling the same paperwork to a different office, I think.) But we can't count on that....

    So wish me luck!

    That's a big ouch!! MY dh worked for AT&T for 15 years and they didn't pay at all in December, they always held the Dec pay over till January. Man I hated that!! They did it for tax purposes and their bottom line.

    Hope the work-around solves the problem and that your holidays don't have to be a stretch. Good luck!

    That's awful! What type of work does your husband do? After all, everyone makes mistakes, it isn't like he intentionally did anything wrong.

    That is awful!! So not fair!!!

    When do you find out if the re-submission of paperwork will fix it?

    OMG that is awful. I hope it gets sorted out soon. I don't know what we would do and if we could pay our mortgage. I hope it works out for you. HUGS!
