2008 Basic Pay Raise
 

Years of Service < 2 - 12
Years of Service 14 - 26

As it did last year - unsuccessfully - the House Armed Services military personnel subcommittee, which traditionally takes the first legislative action on the pay and benefits provisions of the annual defense budget, has called for a larger military pay raise for 2008 than what the Bush administration proposed. The White House wants a 3 percent raise for all ranks, which would keep pace with average increases in private-sector wages. The subcommittee is recommending a 3.5 percent increase. In either case, the raise would be effective Jan. 1.

Basic pay rates under the two plans, with the 3 percent increase indicated in nonbold and the 3.5 percent increase indicated in bold:
