Active-duty Airmen assigned to Turkey between Aug. 29, 2016, and Dec. 31, 2018, may be eligible for the secretary of the Air Force-approved Turkey Assignment Incentive Pay (TAIP). Airmen may apply for TAIP at three points in time. The TAIP rate is $300 per month. Airmen currently serving an unaccompanied tour of 12 or 15 months, who are within 30 days of arrival and agree to serve a total of 24 months in Turkey, will receive TAIP with a payment effective date based on when the Airman elects the incentive.
