The new consolidated special pay plan is confusing. To try and alleviate that confusion, I’m going to publish what I’ll call special pay profiles. Next up…General Medical Officer (GMO).
Monthly Pay of a GMO
Let’s assume this is a GMO with the Marines at Camp Lejeune who had no prior service, did internship, and has been a GMO for 1 year with dependents. This is what that GMO should see on their LES:
BASE PAY - $4,587.00 (O3 over 2 pay grade from the 2017 Basic Pay Table)
BAS - $253.63 (all officers get the same rate)
BAH - $1425.00 (O3 with dependents rate in zip code 28542 based on this calculator)
TOTAL – $7932.29/month
ANNUAL TOTAL – $95,187.48
