Military Pay Chart 2016

2016 US Military Basic Pay Charts

When the budget proposal for FY-2013 was released, Department of Defense (DoD) officials laid out a five year plan for military pay. For 2016, DoD reportedly plans to propose to congress a one percent pay raise that would break away from the current law that dictates adjustment in military pay shall an increase at the percentage of the Employment Cost Index (ECI) for the base quarter of the year before the preceding year, "[the] three-month period ending on September 30 of such year."

Current Congressional Budget Office estimates have the ECI that would affect 2016 pay at 3.5%. The Department of Defense desires a 1.0% raise for 2016. The pay scales below reflect DoD's desire. If these numbers hold true, the military would once again begin to see a gap in pay as compared to civilian counterparts.

The United States military pay scales below would become effective on January 1, 2016 if approved. It is the basic pay amounts for the active components of the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard.

The pay rates are monthly, US dollar.
