Annual Increase in Pay

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. I am confused (nothing different there). When do I get an increase in pay, is it every year on the day I joined the army, every year on the day a did a level 2 course. No one i know seems to know
  2. You effectively get 2 pay rises a year.

    1 - Annual inflation rise every April (start of financial year - think last year junior ranks got 2.8%)

    2 - You move up an increment level every year, on your promotion date.

    I'm by no means a HR guru, but that is my understanding of it.
  3. Take a look at your pay statement in the payroll information box(Bottom left handside) where it says IBD 01/NOV/02 (for example). This is the date you will receive your annual increase on.
  4. Correct. Promotion date not Class 3 / 2 / 1 date.
