The 2013 military budgets have been proposed, but as of yet, have not been finalized. We have included the following military pay charts as a reference for what we expect the 2013 military pay scale to be. These pay charts are based on the 2012 military pay rates, with the addition of an accross-the-board raise of 1.7%. These are the numbers that were included in the most recent DoD budgets, and will likely to the final numbers. Once approved, the 2013 pay charts will take effect on January 1, 2013.
