GFI Breaker

Big box store has a 70 amp spa panel with a 50 amp GFI on display.

They have the GFI curly pig tail connected to the neutral bar. Is this correct?

Is what correct? The neutral wire to the neutral bar? Where else would you put it? Any GFCI device needs to have connections on the line side for the hot wire(s) and for the neutral. The load wires then connect to the GFCI.

In the case of a 240 volt GFCI breaker, the line hot wires connect directly (no wires) like a normal breaker, and the neutral is connected via the white pigtail to the neutral buss. The load wires then connect to the breaker.
