Basic Pay for Active Duty Military Members
Basic Pay is the base salary for a Soldier on active duty and counts for part of total military income. Basic Pay is
electronically distributed on the 1st and 15th of every month, similar to many civilian jobs. Basic Pay for a Soldier depends
on length of service as well as rank (most enlisted Soldiers enter the Army as a private).
Active duty officers and enlisted Soldiers are eligible for Basic Pay.
