I'm an 11B, SPC with 380 promotion points. I completed BLC November 21st. And I'm Active Duty Army. My name did not come up on the January promotion list, how can I get this fixed so that my promotion will reflect January 1st. What else do I need to do to insure my name does come up on February.

It happens, sometimes you can be put on the list later, it happened to me. Regardless, congrats and commiserations.

You have to find out why it didn't. For some reason you aren't promotable right now. Usually it's an expired APFT or weapons qualification.
Unfortunately, you're no longer able to request to have the mistake corrected to be promoted to the month you should have pinned. However, it is easy for you S1 to reintegrate you into the promotable list for next month.

Then you need to speak with chain-of-command and find out if there is any sort of non-promotion counseling in your packet. Since you should already have been counseled and be aware of this, check and see if it has been removed from the record or listed as resolved in later counselings. If you believe all of the promotions you are to receive are automatic or deserved because you've "done your time," you are wrong. I'm going to assume that neither is the case, but make sure there are no bars of any type that you can think of or imagine might be holding back a promotion. As SGT Matthew Kletzel is correct in that the paperwork going through HRC is taking time and depending on when it reached them for processing. Remember that the Army keeps it's own schedule! I've known an E-6 (P) who (in his own words when he addressed us as our PS) stated he was waiting on the Army to formally promote him to E-7. If I recall, that didn't happen for up to six months later. It comes easier and sooner for E-5's, but you should have been in long enough to know that YOU don't determine when you get pinned, your chain-of-command does. If memory serves, they can still hold back the pinning even if your ERB reflects a higher rank. That might be some old BS I heard, but I have seen it done to done to E-3's presuming they could throw on rank when they wanted to not when it was permitted by command.

SGT Jim Wiseman - What you said about pinning I have observed as well BUT....and this is a very minor point but local chain of command can be overridden in the "when to pin" decision by ABCMR. Happened to me. Promotion orders signed by a one star General and stated "promote immediately and without delay". The MEPS screwed up my college credit for rank accounting so I filed with ABCMR after I was assigned my first unit. So just a minor point if the promotion is to correct a past mistake, local chain of command cannot interfere with it if so stated on the orders.

Verify that your points are correct on your battalion’s C-10 roster. Your S1 is responsible for making sure it is correct. While you are consulting with S1, ensure your 1059 is in your records. Also make sure your APFT and weapons are up to date on your PPW. I have seen instances where a Soldier has lost their P status because their 705 was never uploaded and “expired”.
