Career Sea Pay Chart
The Approved changes to Sea Pay are listed below with headings in RED.
As a part of President Obama's budget request released on March 4, 2014: "the proposals include a 25 percent increase in career sea pay, an increase from $100 per month to $200 per month in career sea pay premium, and the reinstatement of high deployment allowance (HDA). The payment of HDA sends a tangible message to Sailors that the Navy recognizes the rigors and sacrifice of extended deployments." The change to Career Sea Pay has been approved by SECNAV, and this boost in Career Sea Pay will be effective May 1, 2014.
The pay tables below reflect the sea pay amount earned based on your pay grade and the cumulative number of years attached stationed) at a creditable "sea" command during your career.
Your cumulative years of sea duty credit can be found on your leave and earnings statement. Sea pay is taxed unless you are serving in a designated taxfree zone.
The below rates reflect a monthly amount which is added to your basic pay. Military pay and allowances 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.
