2023 Reserve and National Guard Drill Pay

Updated: December 27, 2022
In this Article

    Drill pay for 2023 increased by 4.6% under the National Defense Authorization Act. The House and Senate authorized the increased budget on Dec. 15, and the bill was signed into law by President Joe Biden on Dec. 23, 2022.

    Drill pay increases go into effect on Jan. 1, 2023.

    Drill pay for a National Guard or reserve service member depends on the length of service and rank (most enlisted soldiers enter as E-1). National Guard and reserve service members must perform at least one-weekend drill per month and two weeks of active duty training each year.

    Each drill period is four hours; a drill weekend is four drill periods. There are two drill periods each day. National Guard and reserve service members must perform a minimum of one-weekend drill per month and two weeks of active duty training each year.

    About Drill Pay

    Drill pay is part of the total compensation available to National Guard and reserve soldiers performing drilling and other training duties. National Guard and reserve soldiers perform a minimum of one-weekend drill per month and two weeks per year of active duty for training.

    • A drill period is defined as four hours.
    • There are four drill periods in one-weekend drill (16 hours per weekend or eight hours per day).
    • Pay is equal to one day of active-duty base pay for each drill period (four day’s active-duty pay for a weekend duty).
    • Pay is based on two weeks of training each year and one weekend each month.
    • A prorated basic pay is given for training events that last longer than one weekend, and compensation is based hourly for completed work.
    • If placed on active duty, compensation is the same basic pay as active-duty counterparts.
    • Drill pay compensation depends on the length of service and rank.

    The drill pay charts are for all military service reserve and Guard branches: Army Reserve, Army National Guard, Marine Corps Reserve, Navy Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard and Coast Guard Reserve.
