Hardship Duty Pay-Tempo (HDP-T) eligible Sailors have received $4.2 million in their paycheck as of Jan. 28. The Sailors received HDP-T at $16.50 daily, and did not exceed the $495 monthly maximum when they were operationally deployed beyond 220 consecutive days. HDP-T took effect Sept. 17, 2014, and Sailors and Marines will receive the pay on a monthly basis. Reservists serving in individual augmentee assignments that meet the 220-day threshold will receive their pay upon completion of their mobilization. The DoD has authorized HDP-T for two years.
