I’ve been in my unit a year now and have been put off from getting my time in service and time in grade calculated ,(from S1 and retention nco). I simply want to know what the formula is so I can do it myself and catch up on my back pay and get my e5 rank. I’ve been a specialist since Nov2015 and have completed everything to pick up my five ,but this is the only thing hold me back AD side since I left the guard.?

You can’t do it yourself, that’s not how it works. You are not capable or authorized to do the form required to update your PEBD or BASD.
You’ll want to review AR 600-20 about enlisted date of rank to determine yours.

Yes, SFC Boyd is correct. It would be your S1/UAT/ARA who would do it. I should have stated that as well.

1. Compute initial basic pay date
Compute initial basic pay date. This is the time you've served since your most recent service entry date with no breaks. For enlisted, use date of enlistment. For officers, use date of acceptance of commission; if you attended a service academy, this is your date of graduation. Count the number of days since that date and add one to count today. For example, March 1st, 2010 to March 22, 2010 is 22 days.

2. Determine creditable service
Determine creditable service for any previous service periods by counting the days between start and end dates of those service periods. Be sure to add one day to non-consecutive periods of service to account for inclusive days.

3. Add the number
Add the the number of days from Step 1 to the days from Step 2 to get a total of your days of service.

4. Convert the days from Step 3
Convert the days from Step 3 to years, months and days, using 30-day months for your calculations. For example, 364 days is exactly 12 months and 4 days.

5. Subtract the time from Step 4
Subtract the time from Step 4 from today to get your effective PEBD. For example, Jan. 2, 2010 minus two years, four months, and one day yields a PEBD of Sept. 1, 2007.
