Military Pay Chart 2008

2008 Military Pay Charts

The pay tables below are based on a 3.5% pay raise. On November 13, 2007 the President signed into law a defense appropriations bill which authorized a 3.5% across the board pay raise to be included in the 2008 Defense Budget.

The Presidents recent veto of the defense budget should only delay the raise - the 3.5% pay raise is supported by both the House and Senate, it is not the segment of concern in the budget. Discussions and plans imply all raises will be retroactive to January 1, 2008 regardless if final approval isn't even reached until February - March.

The Navy active duty end-strength total, officer and enlisted, for Fiscal Year 2008 was 332,436.

The charts are valid for active and reserve components of the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard. Military pay is distributed on the 1st and 15th day of the month. The below rates reflect a monthly pay amount.

Note: Military Pay Chart amounts are rounded to the nearest dollar.
