On November 5, 1990, President George H. W. Bush signed Public Law 101-510, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1991, which "[waived] the automatic adjustment in military pay consistent with the FY-1991 adjustment in the General Schedule of the Government, providing instead a 4.1% increase in the rates of basic pay, basic allowance for quarters, and basic allowance for subsistence."

Also, as a result of the Armed Forces Retirement Home Act of 1991, active duty Enlisted members, Warrant Officers and Limited Duty Officers (not to include the Coast Guard or any Reserve component) would have an amount deducted from their monthly pay and deposited into the Armed Forces Retirement Home Trust Fund per section 1007(i) of title 37.
