When is the last day to update your PPW for next month’s promotion selection list? | AskTOP.net - Leader Development for Army Professionals

When is the last day to update your PPW for next month’s promotion selection list?

I'd like to add points for next month's promotion selection. What is the last date I can have my ERB updated?

The 8th of the month is the last day points may be updated in order for points to be considered for the next month’s promotion selections.  If the 8th falls on a weekend or holiday, you would either need to input on the last duty day prior to the 8th or work the weekend to input on the 8th.  However, you should continually add entries to the ERB as the Soldier provides documentation.  There is no “window” for updating the ERB.

    I updated my ERB yesterday, 7 April and everything was published on my PPW today 8 April to be considered for this months cut off. However, the number of points i have did not update on my ERB yet. Does it affect my chance of getting promoted because it has not populated yet?

      Rebecca,

      You should not encounter any issues. This is what I gathered from HRC Promotions:

      “Consideration for promotion is based on the promotion points that are reflected on the PPW as of the 8th day of the month.”

    A Staff Sergeant from S1 came in on Saturday which was 8 March. He updated my ERB but the PPW still says it was updated on the 10th which was the following Monday. So I don’t think that updating over a weekend counts and people should know that they need to update by the last business day. Just my two cents since I’m gonna miss cut off for the month of April
