Some who are asking
questions about this issue.
THIS is what we do!
• We educate our elected
officials
• We encourage them to
ask questions about
matters that are
significant to the National
Guard
• Are healthcare premiums
an issue for Active Duty
service members?

• Q: On pay raises, the pay raise will be 1.7
percent for fiscal year 2013 and 2014. After
that, do you have any idea what that reduced
rate would be?
• MR. HALE: “I can tell you what we're planning
for right now, and we're planning for:
– 2015 – 0.5 %
– 2016 – 1%
– 2017 – 1.5%

Instead of 4 pay periods each UTA
weekend, the National Guard would
receive 2 pay periods. That is half
the paycheck you receive now, and
it will also cut your Guard retirement
points by over 1/3rd.

• Reduces Drill Pay
• Reduces Retirement Points
• Turn a 5 day into a “12 day work week”
– In many states, this would trigger overtime….
• Guard pays their own travel expenses
• Active Duty gets paid for weekends when
they are OFF….
• AND, they earn leave time….

Active Duty Compensation
30 = Days in a month
8 = Weekend Days in a Month
2.5 = Leave accrued in a Month
10.5 = Total time off in a 30 day month
Active Duty receives a full month’s pay for
more than 1/3 of a month in “down-time”
