A retired member of the Navy claimed pay and allowances believed due for 9 months in 1945. The claim was disallowed since his pay record indicated that he was paid the appropriate amounts and had no unpaid entitlements for the period. In any event his claim, which was first received by GAO in May 1975, was barred from consideration by statutes pertaining to time limitations on such claims.
