Pay enquiry


I am looking to join the army and have been told that people have been turned down at the selection stage for having to much debt.
What is an acceptable and and non acceptable amount of debt to have?

Also if i were to be accepted i understand that whilst in basic training you are given a percentage of you wage and then the rest when you finish, is this correct and how much do you receive a month or a week?

Many thanks for any advice posted in response to this query.

And appologies if this is posted in the wrong area but i was unsure where to put it.


You are correct, if you have a certain amount of debt you will not be allowed to proceed with the recruiting procedure. You need to phone your local AFCO (Armed Forces Careers Office). You must be able to repay your debt without incurring financial hardship, i.e. the guide is 25% of your net earnings. New entrant soldier is on £33.32 per day (gross) - Good luck!!


Please tell me this is not son of "johno" 24502323?
