Military Special Pay: Submarine Duty Pay Enlisted

Posted:

Military members may be entitled to extra pay, depending on the circumstances. These special pays are subject to income tax, unless earned in a designated combat zone.

Enlisted military personnel (mostly Navy) who perform operational submarine duty are entitled to submarine duty pay.

You would be entitled to this special Submarine Duty Pay while receiving instruction to prepare for assignment to a submarine of advanced design; or while receiving instruction to prepare for a position of increased responsibility on a submarine.

In the context of Submarine Duty Pay, "operational submarine duty" means duty while attached under competent orders to a submarine; while serving as an operator or crew member of an operational submersible; while undergoing training preliminary to assignment to a nuclear-powered submarine; while undergoing rehabilitation after assignment to a nuclear-powered submarine; or while attached as a member of a submarine operational command staff whose duties require serving on a submarine during underway operations.

Submarine Duty Pay for enlisted military personnel is calculated as follows: during 1 calendar month, you must serve 48 hours to receive special pay. However, hours served underway in excess of 48 hours as a member of a submarine operational command staff during any of the immediately preceding 5 calendar months, and not already used to qualify for incentive pay, may be applied to satisfy the 48-hour underway time requirements for the current month.

For any 2 consecutive calendar months, when requirements have not been met for the first month, you must satisfy 96 hours to qualify for Submarine Duty Pay. During any 3 consecutive calendar months, when requirements have not been met for the first 2 months, the qualifying number of hours totals 144.
