2016 Military Pay Charts

2016 military pay charts are reflecting a 1.3% increase as set forth in the FY 2016 budget proposal. General and flag officers above pay grade O-7 will not see an increase due to a pay freeze at those higher levels. The first paycheck reflecting the 2016 pay raise will be released on January 15, 2016.

See the 2017 proposed military pay charts.
