Current 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 sea pay tables reflect the monthly 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.

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