2010 Military Basic Pay Charts


Updated September 14, 2010

The 2010 Defense Authorization Act is now law. The act calls for a 3.4 percent across-the-board increase in military basic pay over 2009. rates.

The Obama Administration originally asked for a 2.9 percent increase in basic pay. This is the minimum raise required by law. However, every year for the past several years, Congress has approved a military pay raise slightly larger than that requested by the President, and 2010 was no exception.

Both the House and the Senate agreed to include a 3.4 percent across-the-board military base pay raise in the 2010 Defense Authorization Act.
