Longer Separation Allowance (LSA)
LSA days are accrued for every eligible day that you are away.
The MOD has LSA within certain levels ranging from 1 to 16 and each level entitles you to earn a bit more than the last.
To increase your LSA levels, you will need to hit the right criteria for qualified days away.
For example, everyone starts on Level 1 and personnel have to acquire more than 280 days away to hit Level 2.
Currently, going from Level 1 to Level 2 means that you earn an extra £4.20 per day.
If you’re someone that’s happy to be away and earn that extra pay, then LSA days is the way to go.
If you’re unsure about your eligibility then make sure to read Chapter 10: Section 1 of JSP 752.
Always speak to your clerk before making any claims.
The data provided is for representational purposes only and the correlation between LSA days and the rates of pay are updated as of February 2020.
