United States Military Pay Raise 2018

2018 U.S. Military Basic Pay Raise

October 28, 2016, at 0830EST, the United States Employment Cost Index (ECI) was released. The releasing of the ECI by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics is an eagerly awaited quarterly economic indicator for those in the stock market and politics; but what makes this morning’s release important to our military is that it is the first indicator used to determine the actual pay raise amount for 2018. For 2018, the pay raise increase should be 2.4 percent based on U.S.C. Title 37.
