Military Pay Chart 2012

2012 US Military Basic Pay Charts

On December 31, 2011, President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 which provides the funding required for the calendar year 2012 1.6% pay raise he approved on December 19th via Executive Order 13594.

On December 19, 2011, President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order (EO), "Adjustments of Certain Rates of Pay", that increases the rate of monthly basic pay per Title 37 U.S.C. 203(a) for the uniformed members of the military, as adjusted under Title 37 U.S.C. section 1009, which dictates the use of the ECI (1.6%). Raise to be effective January 1, 2012 per the EO.

On December 15, 2011, the full Senate and House approved the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. The bill is on its way to President Obama for signature. Once signed, the funding for the 2012 pay raise will be in place.

On November 15, for the second time, the Senate Armed Services Committee approved the FY-2012 defense authorization bill. The bill is expected to reach the Senate for consideration before the 18th with the 1.6 percent pay raise still intact.

On June 16, the Senate Committee on Armed Services, unanimously authorized a 1.6 percent across-the-board pay raise for 2012 for all members of the uniformed services, consistent with the President Obama's request. The bill now moves to the full Senate for consideration.

On May 12, 2011, The House Armed Services Committee, with a vote of 60-1, approved the 1.6% military pay raise as part of the 2012 defense budget. The 2012 defense bill will now move on to the full House for the next step in the legislative process.

February 14, 2011, President Obama proposed a minimum of a 1.6% military pay raise in his "Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2012." His proposal is based on the on the wage and salary series for private industry workers as indicated in the Employment Cost Index that was released on the last business day in October 2010. Some in congress are rumbling about a freeze of military pay to the 2011 levels; doing so means that some of the ground that was retaken over the last 10 years to close the pay gap will be lost. The pay scales below reflect the 1.6% raise. The pay rates are monthly amounts rounded to the nearest U.S. dollar.

The Navy active duty end-strength, officer and enlisted, for Fiscal Year 2012 was 318,406.
