Pay


rnpay_1 The level of pay paid to Naval personnel is based on their specialisation, rank and length of service.  Some can also receive additional pay for skills such as flying or diving.

Remember that the Navy employs the Serviceman or woman, not their partners or spouses, so pay slips will not be sent to partners/spouses nor will details of personal pay or allowances be given to anyone other than the Service person.  However, anyone can ask to see the general pay and allowances rates.

The regulations regarding pay are contained within JSP 754.


Officers' Pay Scales
The rates of pay for Officers are promulgated annually by letter from the Director of Service Personnel Policy Pay & Allowances, (D/SPPol P&A), based in the Ministry of Defence, London.  Rates of pay are based on on Service, Rank and Specialisation, Seniority in Rank, Satisfactory Performance and Professional Qualifications and are paid in 12 equal monthly instalments.  An overview of Officers' pay ranges is available by clicking on the link below.  However, if Service personnel have any queries regarding their own pay, they are advised to visit their Unit Personnel Office or Ship's Office onboard to seek clarification.

Armed Forces Pay Review Bodyrmpay_1
The pay and allowances of the Armed Forces are reviewed regularly. Salaries are looked at each year by an independent Armed Forces Pay Review Body (AFPRB) and are related as much as possible to wages in comparable jobs in civilian life, plus an 'X' Factor added to recognise the special circumstances of Service life.  Service personnel's salaries are paid directly into their bank accounts at the end of each month.  A pay statement showing all earnings and deductions is sent each month to the Service person.  Any allowances due are also paid directly into his/her bank account.

All AFPRB reports (including the latest award) can be found by following the link below

JPA System

Here are some tips you may wish to consider:

  • Encourage your loved one to check their online pay statement for accuracy. (There will be self-service stations in each unit – even those in conflict zones will have access when they return to rear HQs)
  • In the event of concerns only the Service person can raise queries either through self-service help, their Unit Human Resources personnel or the JPAC Enquiry Centre (but a little home based persuasion often goes a long way!)
  • Early contact with your bank to inform them of a potential problem with pay roll credit may be prudent.  This will allow you to arrange for overdraft facilities, the honouring of regular payments (direct debits etc.) and the avoidance of bank charges.
  • Finally, maintain regular communication with your loved one to ensure you are aware of changes to their pay arrangements and any effect it may have on you and your family.

Remember: if you do incur unexpected costs due to bank fees etc as a direct result of the JPA changes, you may be able to make a case to Unit Personnel Human Resource staff for full recovery.
