    I have two new lines pop up on my LES, and have no IDEA what they are...I believe one of them (the HFP) is the new name for CIP, but WTF is HDP Location and IDP? Any help is appreciated..

    HDP Location
    HFP/IDP- got this one figured out, it is the money I was supposed to be paid while overseas but never was...Hostile Fire Pay/Imminent Danger Pay...

    Still not sure what the HDP is...All I can find online is Hazardous Duty Pay, but I don't know why that is there...Unless it is something else..Any ideas what else HDP is? Possibly the new designation for CIP?

    HDP-Location is "hardship duty pay-location". means the military sent you somewhere REALLY crappy so they pay you more.

    Back in March, one of the Defense undersecretaries used discretionary authority to pay WTU Soldiers what they were making when they got transferred out of a combat zone, into the WTU. The authorization will expire next March if I remember correctly (but probably will be renewed then) and lasts until you transfer out of the WTU or are retired. The last time I checked for one of my clients, the extra pay is not retroactive back to when you were transferred to the WTU.

    I had heard about that, but thought it only applied to the CIP?

    If I can find my copy of the memo I got from DFAS under the huge pile of work I haven't finished yet, I'll post it online for you.
