Basic Pay is the main compensation for service members. You can expect to be paid every two weeks. Military pay comes with other benefits and perks, one being a steady paycheck with tax-free allowance. Military pay is primarily determined by two factors, years of service and rank. If you choose a military bank like Armed Forces Bank, you may be able to access your pay early.
