PAY FAQ

Q.1: HOW ARE ANNUAL PAY RAISES DETERMINED?

A: ECI is the Employment Cost Index, which is a measure of the increase in private-sector wages and salaries. It is calculated by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics and updated every three months. The ECI, reported each October, is used to determine the pay raise for the next fiscal year. The raise was set at ECI + 1/2% for 2000 through 2006. The FY2004 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) established that the military pay raise will be equal to ECI after 2006. Of course, Congress can enact raises that exceed these percentages as they did for 2008 and 2009.

Q.2: DOES THIS AFFECT FEDERAL CIVILIANS?

The provision for military pay increases set to the ECI does not necessarily pertain to Federal civilian employees. The pay tables for Federal civilians may be seen at the Office of Personnel Management web site.

Q.3: DO THESE FUTURE PAY RAISES AFFECT RETIREES?

A: No. Retiree Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLAs) are based on the increase of inflation, which is measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), not ECI. Retirees receive an annual Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA).

Q.4: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CPI (USED FOR RETIREE INCREASES) AND ECI (USED FOR ACTIVE DUTY RAISES)?

A: CPI, Consumer Price Index, measures inflation. The purpose of using CPI is to generally preserve the purchasing power of retired pay. ECI, Employment Cost Index, measures private-sector wage increases.

Q.5: WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF THE EXECUTIVE CEILING UPON THE PAY RAISES?

A: Pay is still capped for some individuals by law to certain executive pay levels. The cap for basic pay for O-7 to O-10 is limited to Level II of the Executive Schedule. Basic pay for O-6 and below is limited to Level V of the Executive Schedule.

ANNUAL PAY ADJUSTMENT

Annual military pay raises are linked to the increase in private sector wages, as measured by the Employment Cost Index (ECI). In the 1990's, the annual military pay raise was capped at one-half percent below private-sector growth unless specifically granted a larger increase by Congress. The FY2000 National Defense Authorization Act directed that pay raises for 2000 through 2006 would automatically be one-half percent above the private-sector wage increases. Pay raises beginning in 2007 are equal to the increase in the ECI. Pay raises may exceed these automatic levels if authorized and funded by Congress.

In January 2012, the military basic pay increase was 1.6 percent, an increase equal to the change in the ECI.
