Secretary  of  Defense  signs  the  list. President  of  the  United  States  signs  the  list. SECNAV  publishes  the  list  for  rear admiral (lower) and rear admiral (upper) in  an  ALNAV  message. U.S. Senate confirms the list. Lieutenant (active  Reserve),  lieutenant  commander (Reserve),   and   chief   warrant   officer selectees do not require Senate confirma- tion. SECNAV  authorizes  promotions  through ALNAV messages as vacancies occur. This event  normally  occurs  at  monthly  intervals in the fiscal year following the fiscal year of  selection.  Assuming  officers  maintain all  qualifications,  they  will  receive  the  first paycheck  for  the  next  higher  grade  soon after their name appears on this ALNAV message. PAY   AND   ALLOWANCES Two  general  statements  can  safely  be  made about  military  pay.  Few,  if  any,  people  become wealthy on the basis of their military pay alone. On  the  other  hand,  if  budgeted  wisely,  military pay  provides  a  comfortable  standard  of  living. From  a  career  standpoint,  you  should  keep certain  factors  in  mind  when  making  dollar-for- dollar  comparisons  of  military  and  civilian  pay. Military pay is guaranteed and predictable. The current trend in military pay is upward. Periods of   business   recession   do   not   adversely   affect military pay. A portion of the total military pay is  not  taxable,  and  provisions  are  made  for additional  pay  for  various  forms  of  special  or hazardous  duty. Many publications contain descriptions of the entire matter of military pay. Our purpose here is  to  give  an  overview  and  to  define  and  briefly discuss   elements   that   compose   the   total   pay structure. Commissioned  officers  and  warrant  officers are assigned by law to paygrades on the basis of the  grades  in  which  they  are  serving,  whether under   temporary   or   permanent   appointment. Enlisted   personnel,    on  the  other  hand,  are assigned  to  paygrades  by  the  Secretary  of  the Navy. BASIC,  SPECIAL,  AND INCENTIVE  PAY Basic pay, which accrues for all personnel on the  basis  of  paygrade  and  cumulative  years  of service,  is  the  major  portion  of  a  person’s  total pay.  The  cumulative  years  of  service  may  have been  in  any  branch  of  the  armed  services  or  a Reserve   component. Special  pay  is  added  compensation  received for   performing   special   duties.   For   officers, “special  duty”  is  limited  to  medical  and  dental billets  and  duties  involving  diving  and  coming under  hostile  fire.  Special  pay  for  doctors  and dentists is prorated on the number of years they have been on active duty (although certain medical officers serving in critical specialties also receive a  special  continuation  pay).  Special  pay  for  hostile fire   and   diving   involves   flat   monthly   sums regardless of grade or years of service. As a matter of  interest,  special  pay  for  hostile  fire  is  not payable  in  time  of  war  declared  by  Congress. Incentive  pay,  prorated  according  to  grade  and years  of  service,  is  additional  pay  received  for performing   hazardous   duty.   Included   in   this category  are  flight  pay  for  both  crew  and  non- crew  members;  submarine  pay;  and  extra  pay received  for  parachute,  aircraft  carrier  flight  deck, explosive  demolition,  experimental  stress,  or leprosarium  duty. ALLOWANCES An  allowance  is  a  contribution  of  money,  or its  equivalent  “in  kind,”  to  help  meet  expenses incurred  as  the  result  of  membership  in  the  naval service.  Allowances  are  not  taxable. Basic Allowance for Quarters (BAQ) The  purpose  of  basic  allowance  for  quarters (BAQ) is to help members pay the cost of obtain- ing  suitable  living  quarters  when  government quarters  are  unavailable  or  not  assigned. BAQ is divided into two categories: BAQ for members   without   dependents   and   BAQ   for members with dependents. The rates payable vary according  to  your  grade. If you live in government quarters, you forfeit your  BAQ  in  lieu  of  rent. Variable Housing Allowance (VHA) Variable housing allowance (VHA) is paid in addition to BAQ to help members defray the cost 3-16
