ABSTRACT

Defense Primer: Military Pay Raise [Updated January 6, 2020]   [open pdf - 426KB]

From the Document: "The phrase 'military pay raise,' frequently used in discussions of military compensation, almost always refers to the annual increase in 'basic pay' for members of the uniformed services. By law, basic pay is automatically increased at the start of each calendar year by an amount linked to the change in the Employment Cost Index (ECI), although the President or Congress may override this statutory adjustment."
