In the military you will get paid twice a month on the 1st and 15th. Keep in mind they will also take out taxes. In some cases you might recieve what is called COLA which stands for Cost Of Living Adjustment. Military COLA is designed to help offset the higher prices in overseas locations. In addition to COLA there is also BAS which is for food allowance and BAH which is for housing allowance.  In this article we will just stick with the basics and focus on base pay from the chart above. The military pay chart is consistent across all the branches of the military meaning that all pay grades pay the same no matter what branch of the military you are in. There are exceptions of course depending what military field you go into but for base pay everything is consistent.

Military Pay Chart Video Transcript:

hey guys Jason again here I want to take  a minute and talk about something else that kind of makes me proud I’m president Trump he did something recently that helps out the military
tremendously recently he signed a 2.6 percent increase to military pay youknow 2.6 percent might not seem like a lot but it’s the biggest raise since 2010 you know let’s take me for example I’m Staff Sergeant east 6 in 2018 a staff sergeant with 8 years of service his base pay was three thousand four hundred fifty three dollars a month now on january 1st 2019 base pay goes up to three thousand five hundred and forty three dollars doesn’t seem like much butthat’s 90 bucks extra month comes out to one thousand eighty dollars a year again 90 bucks a month might not seem like a lot but with you know and he said some soldier with a family 90 bucks a month is a lot you know it’s maybe a winch or the groceries or you know a date night with the spouse so I mean the 90 bucks goes a long way so again Thank You mr. president for the raise.
