Commissioned Officer Retirement Pay


Commissioned Officer Retirement Pay

Commissioned officers who retire during 2006.

A military member who retires at 20 years of service receives 50 percent of his/her monthly base pay.

For each year served over 20 years, the military member receives an additional 2.5 percent, up to a maximum of 75 percent of their base pay, at 30 years of service.

Military members who entered the service after September 8, 1980, but before August 1, 1986, fall under a slightly different system that pays a little less.

On average, this equates to about 90 percent of the amounts shown on the chart below, which shows retirement pay for those who entered the service prior to September 8, 1980. The exact percentage would depend on individual factors, such as annual pay increases, and dates of promotion and longivity raises, in relation to the date of retirement.
