    The AFPRB’s headline recommendation is for a 2.9 per cent increase in pay for all armed forces personnel up to 1-Star level. The Government has accepted the recommendations in full.

    All Regular and Reserve personnel, including those under training, will receive an increase in pay as a result of this pay award, with Reservist rates of pay uplifted pro-rate in line with changes to the pay of their Regular counterparts. This increase will be paid in September salaries, backdated to 1 April 2019.

    Last year, the Government announced the largest pay rise in nearly a decade for almost a million public sector workers. This year’s award builds on this and focuses attention on increasing pay for the most junior sailors, soldiers, and airmen and women, to ensure that they continue to receive a living wage. Consequently, the basic pay for Other Ranks on completion of their initial training will now be £20,000. This pay rise of over 6% represents an increase of £1,140 for over 7,200 newly trained sailors, soldiers, and airmen and women.

    The pay award represents an annual increase of £995 in the nominal ‘average’ salary in the armed forces (which is at the Corporal level), as well as an annual increase of £769 in starting salary for an officer.

    The AFPRB has also made recommendations on rises and changes to other targeted forms of remuneration, and on increases to food and accommodation charges, which have been accepted. Where applicable, these rate changes will also be backdated to 1 April 2019.

    Further information on this military pay award can be found in the Written Ministerial Statement laid by the Secretary of State for Defence.
