Good news starting Jan 1st for the Military, a 1.7% pay increase for 2013.

2013 US Military Basic Pay Charts

December 27, 2012, President Obama signed Executive Order 13635 “Adjustments of Certain Rates of Pay” that increased the rates of monthly basic pay by 1.7% pay raise per ECI for members of the uniformed services per U.S.C. 37 203(a), and made it effective January 1, 2013. When the NDAA for 2013 is signed, the funding will be available for the raise. If the NDAA is not signed in time for the Jan. 1 effective date, pay will be made retroactive.

On December 21, 2012, reconciled and approved by both the full Senate and House, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2013 is now on its way to President Obama for final signature. Because there is no change to the mandate of U.S.C. Title 37 in the bill, the 1.7 percent military pay raise based on ECI will be approved via Executive Order (same procedure as last year) — the effective date of the raise will be January 1, 2013. Provided the president signs the NDAA before the New Year to provide funding for the pay raise, it should be part of the first check of 2013.
