    I haven't even thought to ask about it until now, but is there a sign-on bonus for enlisting into the Coast Guard? I'm not "money hungry" or only concerned about money or anything, I'm just curious. I tried to look around for some info but only found something say that 1) there are no bonuses and 2) it depends.

    At one point there were bonuses for OS, IS, and FS. However, I believe the enlistment bonuses have been stopped but I'm not completely sure. Basically, to get an enlistment bonus in the CG you have to sign on to go into a rating that is under staffed and if it is under staffed it is for a reason. Take FS, its LONG days and a lot of hard work but some people love it. Choose your rate, choose your fate. So my answer is there aren't any bonuses, but it depends...

    FS and OS have bonuses attached. But, you have to really love to cook or really love listening to radios.

    You have to really love to cook....

    ...and be thick skinned too. Cooks deal with a lot of customers, and customers love to give their feedback. It's not always delivered in a constructive manner.

    But yes, those are the only two bonuses that are available, besides the fact that you get to wake up every day knowing that you joined the best service there is, and no, that's not a joke.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    If you make it into the CG in this area of time, that is the bonus... CG has been extremely difficult to get into the past year and has only been getting harder from the sounds of things.

    Goodluck!

    My son got a small bonus and he didn't sign on for any rate. He got half of it after completing boot camp and I think he gets the other half after A school. Again it wasn't much but it was better than nothing. He was told about getting it when he was given his ship date last October. He went to boot camp in Feb of this year. So, maybe back then they were still doing it. Not sure about now.

    The non-rate bonuses are gone now. When they did exist, you would get the amount (minus taxes) in full upon completion of basic training. The only bonuses that you have to wait until after 'A' school for, are when you sign up for a particular rating (job).
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.
