House lawmakers back plans for biggest military pay raise in 22 years

Recommended Posts

Service members would see their biggest pay raise in 22 years starting in January under budget plans unveiled by a key House committee on Monday.

The move — a 5.2% raise for 2024 — would mean boosts of more than $1,500 for most junior enlisted troops next year and thousands more for higher ranks. Combined with the 2023 pay raise that went into effect five months ago, troops could see a nearly 10% increase in basic pay over a two-year span, and even more financial gains after re-enlistment bonuses and housing stipend increases are factored in.
