Navy-Marine Corps Sea Pay Charts

Career Sea Pay Chart, effective May 1, 2014

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 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 pay tables below reflect the sea pay amount earned based on your pay grade and the cumulative number of years attached (stationed) to a creditable "sea" command during your career.

Sea pay is taxed unless you are serving in a designated tax-free zone.

Effective May 1, 2014, the below rates reflect a monthly amount which is added to your basic pay which is 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.

For specific career sea pay eligibility, and information about career sea pay premium payments, read OPNAVINST 7220.14 for up to date details.
