2017 Military Pay Chart


1.6% Pay Raise Coming In 2017

President Obama recently sent a letter to Congress echoing his support for the 1.6% military pay raise over the 2016 military pay. He states:

This decision is consistent with my fiscal year 2017 Budget and it will not materially affect the Federal Government’s ability to attract and retain well-qualified members for the uniformed services.

Earlier this year the President and the Senate Armed Services Committee published the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The latest version of the NDAA contains a 1.6% pay raise for the military.

The 2017 Military Pay Chart goes into effect on 1 January 2017, for members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines.
