2024 military pay charts are set by Congress annually in the National Defense Authorization Act or NDAA.

The 2024 Military pay is scheduled to increase in 2024 by 5.2% from 2023.

Here are the 2024 military pay charts for enlisted, warrant officers, and officers from less than 2 years of service to 40 years of service. These pay charts are correct for Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Space Force, and Coast Guard servicemembers.

All military branches have the same base pay chart. Servicemembers may be paid differently depending on special pays and allowance, bonuses, and other factors.
