Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi is it true you get a pay rise, when its your 18th birthday ? at the moment im on 37.99 a day any info will b greatly appreciated
     
  2. dont think so fella, your only rises should be on your wage slip under "idd date" see army net online statements or someone elses mail slot for details
     
  3. nope no pay rise. they used to differentiate between under 17 and a halfs and pay them lower but dont do that any more.
     
  4. Depends what you do for a living?
     
  5. You are currently a Pte, Level 1 Lower Range earning £37.99 a day. If you look on your pay statement there is something called your IDD date, on that date you will go to Pte, Level 2 Lower Range earning £40.22 a day. Bear in mind though that if your IDD date is after April, you will recieve another pay rise prior to your IDD date, and subsequently your pay rise on your IDD date will be higher. Either way, you'll be on neally 15 grand a year as an 18 year old, not too shabby really.
