The U.S. Navy has announced changes to Career Sea Pay (CSP). The changes include: (1) new guidelines for special boat units, expeditionary boat units, and landing craft utility units (LCU) to receive daily CSP rates; and (2) all afloat staffs, with the exception of 7th Fleet and Carrier Strike Group 5 staffs, will now earn daily CSP, only for days spent either underway or embarked for eight continuous hours. CSP provides a special payment in recognition of the greater than normal rigors of sea duty, the arduous duty involved in long deployments, and the repetitive nature of assignment to such duty.
