If you want to know what changes have been approved for Military Families for 2017. Pay attention to the base pay and basic allowance for housing changes.  

On December 8, 2016, the full Senate passed the final conference report for the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act by a vote of 92 to 7. The bill will now move to President Obama for final signature. If approved by the President, the 2.1 percent pay raise for 2017 will become effective January 1, 2017.

Military pay will see a 2.1 percent increase for 2017, compared to 2016 levels. The military pay tables below apply to active members of the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

The calculator above (and related tables below) reflect 2017 monthly pay based on the 2.1 percent pay raise, which is effective as of January 1, 2017. This pay increase will be reflected in the January 15 paycheck.
