Military Pay Chart 2009

2009 US Military Pay Charts

On October 14, 2008 the defense funding bill which includes a 3.9% military pay raise for 2009 has been officially signed into law by President Bush. The measure authorizes a pay raise for U.S. military personnel which is a half percentage point more than President Bush sought in his budget request back in February 2008. The President's proposal of 3.4% was in keeping with the 2007 Employment Cost Index (ECI) published by the Department of Labor.

The additional half percent added by congress closed the pay gap to 2.9%, a measure to mandate base pay increases of an additional .5% over ECI for the next few years was defeated causing speculation of future raise amounts.

The Navy active duty end-strength total, officer and enlisted, for Fiscal Year 2009 was 330,621.

US Military pay and allowances are distributed on the 1st and 15th day of the month. If the 1st or 15th fall on a weekend or national holiday payment will be made the working day prior. The pay scales are valid for active and reserve components of the Navy (USN), Marines (USMC), Army (USA), Air Force (USAF), Coast Guard (USCG) and National Guard. Base pay rates below are monthly amounts in US dollars.
