FY21 Special Pays Plan and NDAA 21 Pay Increases

Posted on

The FY21 special pays NAVADMIN is out. You can read it at this link.

That said, what you really want is the Corps specific plans. I sent them to the Specialty Leaders and other senior MC leadership earlier today via e-mail, and they will be posted on the BUMED Special Pays site as soon as possible. It is a fine line I have to walk sometimes deciding what I can or cannot post on the blog, and I just don’t think I can post them here until they are on the BUMED site. Sorry, but that’s the way I feel.

Many have also noticed that NDAA 21 increased some maximum special pays. Because the FY21 DoD and Navy plans were already signed before the NDAA veto override and neither included any of these pay increases, the new maximum amounts will be considered for the FY22 pay plan. In other words, as of now your Board Certified Pay is not going to increase from $6K per year to $15K per year. That could change at some point in the future, but that is the answer I’m getting at BUMED as of now.

    Sir, Could you please clarify the language of the updated special pay guidance in the NDAA? Many of my colleagues think that the government is mandating pay increases for special pays across the board (meaning hundreds of thousands of dollars more for some specialties).
    I’ve read it as the NDAA increases the maximum allowed special pay amounts. Then, it’s up to the services to increase the special pays as they see fit. Thoughts? Thank you.

    The BUMED Special Pay website appears to be down- do you by chance know when that will be back up or if there is another location to get information on submitting a package for the RB?
