Pay & Personnel News Updates from our Branches

New Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS) rates go into effect 01 JAN 2021. 


New CY2021 Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS) rates go into effect 01 JAN 2021. 

• Officers: $266.18

• Enlisted: $386.50

Monthly ENL-BAS rates increases $13.79 to $386.50; monthly OFF-BAS increases $9.50 to $266.50. 

BAS is a non-taxable allowance intended to offset the cost of subsistence for active duty members, including reservists on active duty for training (but not reservists on inactive duty for training (IDT - drills) – enlisted reservists on IDT with pay may receive a separate IDT subsistence allowance). 

ENL-BAS is not payable to enlisted members undergoing basic military training (boot camp), including non-prior service officer candidates at OCS – these trainees are subsisted without charge at CG training installation Dining Facilities.  BAS becomes payable when initial military trainees complete their basic training/OCS.
