  1. Hi,

    did a quick search and didn't get what i wanted.

    Whats the deal with pay in the Navy?

    i start my basic on the 28th April, so when will i get paid and whats the cut offs ect?

    just trying to work out if i can afford any time off before i start from my current job. i was informed about advances ect on my PRNC but didnt grab the pay dates ect


  2. We are paid on the last working day of every month. As you join on the 28th of the month you will have missed that months pay run and will therefore get the final days of Aprils pay in Mays pay packet.
  3. cheers, so whats the pay dates as in, what your paid for? 1st to last working day or?
  4. The armed forces are paid 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on a monthly basis.
  5. ok i'm with you, so on the last working day i get the pay for that month yeah? so in may i'll get a months pay, or will i just get the last 2-3 days of April and have to wait another month to get a full months pay?

    sorry for the questions just trying to get it straight in my mind wether i have to wait 4 weeks to get paid for 8 which would be very tough!

    Errr, the month.
  15. first of the month to that last day in the month yh?
  16. Cough splutter.
  17. Andy, I think you're getting confused with the response you received in the now oft quoted post #2. 'May's pay packet' does indeed mean the pay you will be due in May, so you are not paid with a month 'in hand' (can't remember the exact words you used). At the end of May you will, sorry, should, be paid for the last couple of days in April and all of May (minus my commission). Don't worry about appearing uninformed, I knew people who had served for several years and would still call February's pay March's pay and wonder why they only got 28/29 days pay.

    They have all been summarily executed though.
