2022 – 2023 Drill Pay

Updated: July 15, 2022

Table of Contents

    These are the 2022 and 2023 drill pay charts for National Guard and reserve service members. Each drill period is four hours; a drill weekend is four drill periods. There are two drill periods in each day.

    Here are the 2022 and 2023 reserve component drill pay charts.

    Troops received a 2.7% pay increase in 2022. The proposed 2023 military pay increase is 4.6%, according to a draft of the 2023 defense budget.  Drill pay increases are effective Jan. 1, 2022. 

    Drill pay for a National Guard or reserve service member depends on length of service and rank (most enlisted soldiers enter as E-1).

    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.

    The following charts reflect drill pay only. They do not include sign-on bonuses, allowances, specialty pay or tuition assistance.

    O-1 to O-7: Commissioned officers

    O-1E to O-3E: Commissioned officers with more than four years of active-duty service or more than 1,460 reserve points as an enlisted member or warrant officer

    W1 to W2: Warrant officers

    E-1<4 to E9: Enlisted members

    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 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.
