Report: DoD Prepares to Analyze Military Pay Overhaul Recommendations

PentagonA task force created by Congress to review the U.S. military pay and benefits structure could issue reform proposals by Feb. 1, Air Force Times reported Tuesday.

Andrew Tilghman writes the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission will likely propose changes in the Defense Department‘s retirement program as well as in-kind benefits and incentives for service members.

DoD has formed working groups that will examine the commission’s recommendations and create a formal response for submission to the White House, according to Tilghman’s article.

An internal DoD document obtained by Military Times says civilian and military officials are scheduled to conduct the assessment between Feb. 2 and Feb. 6.

The working groups will analyze the potential impact of proposed military pay changes on the branches’ recruitment and retention programs, Tilghman writes.
