President Obama and House of Representatives Budgets include a proposed 1.7 percent across-the-board base pay raise for 2013. This raise is .1% percent more than the 2012 military pay increase and remains among the smallest increases since 1962.
Military members receive a monthly base pay which is based on their rank and time in service. Active duty members receive full-time pay, while Guard an Reserve members (who are not on active duty) receive part-time pay, or drill pay, depending on the number of drills they perform each month. Military pay is subject to income taxes unless it is earned in a designated combat zone. All branches of the U.S. military receive the same amount of base pay. This military pay chart can be used to determine Air Force pay, Army pay, Coast Guard pay, Marine pay and/or Navy pay.
The military maintains various other pays that are not included as part of the pay tables below. Additionally, there are certain allowances provided such as Clothing Allowance, Basic Allowance for Housing and Cost of Living Allowance.
The following charts reflect monthly pay rates determined by pay grade and years of military service.
