Para pay

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by tmsbry, Nov 24, 2008.

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. How much extra are the paras paid & whats the criteria for being eligible to receive it.

  2. You have to be in flagged post on JPA. Normally serving in an airborne role post, not all posts are piad in airborne units, this is myth. You have to have all arm parachute cse or go para reg.

    I dont have the rates at hand as i have a bottle of wine in fromt of me - finished work today. But if you leave the paid slot, IE posted. it will decrease gradually. hope this helps.

    £5.20 per day. Advice above is correct, in a nutshell if you're not serving somewhere within 16 Air Assault Brigade, then you won't be paid it.
  4. Just because you are in 16 AAB. it doesn't mean you will qualify for Para pay (after corse). Not all units have 'cart-blanche' Para pay. Some units have few allocated slots in which you require to fill a PID to claim (and current up to date jumps record card)
  5. You need to be in date as well.
  6. erm i am sure I said the same in my post above?
