United States Army Officer Pay

Officers in the U.S. Army receive a monthly salary called basic pay, determined by the officer's current DoD paygrade. Army officers range from paygrades O-1, Second Lieutenant, to O-10, General of the Army. Army officers receive automatic pay raises every one to two years based depending on their paygrade, with lower-ranking Army officers reaching their basic pay ceiling much sooner then higher-ranking officers.

In addition to basic pay, Army officers are eligible for a wide variety of additional payments, bonuses, and allowances. These include hostile fire pay, food and housing allowance, personal money allowances, hazard pay, and more.
