Military.com recently launched a new app that will allow service members instantaneous access to information about their pay and allowances from their mobile devices and tablets.
The subject of pay is one of the most popular topics on Military.com and the website’s pay calculator has been used extensively since its launch over a decade ago.
Today, more and more people use their mobile devices to access information on the go prompting the launch of a free, easy to use, portable app that quickly help to determine exactly what pay and allowances you will be eligible for when planning a PCS move or career change. The military pay app is free to download from Apple iTunes or the Google Play Store for iOs and Android devices.
Military pay is a complicated formula that begins with base pay based on rank and years of service. Your base pay is then augmented by special pays based on your job or qualifications, and various allowances such as housing and subsistence allowances which vary by location. The new military pay app quickly and easily takes all your pay and allowances into consideration and computes your monthly or annual pay based on the information you enter.
The app allows service members and their families to accurately predict their compensation and calculate possible changes or additional pay they may be eligible for because of job changes or new qualifications in a specialty area. Besides quickly and easily calculating your military pay the app also features reference information and articles about finances, budgets and other information from our website.
Greg Smith, President of Military.com and retired Navy Admiral, said, “The complexities of the military pay system demand a comprehensive and simple way to keep abreast of changes. Military.com has introduced a new pay app that will give our military members and their families the information they need to make informed decisions.”
You can also use your mobile device to easily access all the Veteran and military information on Military.com that you need to help you in your active duty life and beyond, including our videos page, which includes a number of fun and educational military related videos, and the Job Fair Listing page which provides you easy access to upcoming Veteran specific job fairs in your area.
