2011 Hazardous Duty Incentive Pay (Non-flying)


Updated January 17, 2011

Military members who perform duties which are considered "dangerous," due to the nature of the job, are entitled to monthly hazardous duty incentive pay, as follows:

  • Parachute jumping: $150
  • Explosive Demotion: $150
  • Handling of Toxic Fuels: $150
  • Flight Deck Duty: $150
  • Experimental Stress Duty: $150
  • Hight Altitude, Low Opening (HALO) Parachute jumping: $225

Servicemembers that meet the requirements for more than one type of hazardous duty pay during the same period are entitled to receive a maximum of two types of hazardous duty pay. This presumes that the individual in question was assigned to a unit whose mission involves the performance of both types of hazardous duties.
