Military Pay Chart 2011

2011 US Military Basic Pay Charts

August 2, 2011, the United States debt limit was raised and a default has been averted, all military pay, allowances and benefits continued, uninterrupted.

April 8, 2011, the government shutdown has been averted, all military pay, allowances and benefits continued, uninterrupted.

On January 7, 2011, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (H.R. 6523) that provides a 1.4% increase for military pay, effective January 1, 2011. The raise should be noticed in January's first pay check.

On November 10, 2010, President Obama's bipartisan commission on reducing the national debt recommended, amount other things, a freeze of non-combat military pay and bonuses for three years at 2011 levels - the raise amount for 2011 has yet to be determined, but a number of congressmen have gone on record to say that the budget deficit will not be fixed on the backs of our service members when there are so many other places to cut.

On February 1, 2010, President Obama, in his defense budget proposal for 2011, recommended an increase of 1.4% for military basic pay. The percentage of presidential pay raise proposals in recent years has utilized the Employment Cost Index (ECI) published by the Department of Labor, and this year was no different. Congress has supported and passed a half percent increase to each president's proposal every year since 1999 to help close the gap with the private sector. Both the Obama Administration and the Pentagon are at odds with the additional half percent increase, citing the gap in military pay has been closed, and further increases to personnel costs will greatly reduce the military's effectiveness over time.

The Navy active duty end-strength total, officer and enlisted, for Fiscal Year 2011 was 325,123.

Military pay and allowances in the United States 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 below are for active and reserve components of the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard, and are monthly amounts rounded to the nearest US dollar.
