Issue Summary

Active Versus Reserve Parachute Jump Pay

Issue Number 514
Status Unattainable
Issue Title Active Versus Reserve Parachute Jump Pay
Scope Parachute Jump Pay is computed on a daily rate while on jump status. Therefore, RC service members generally receive a vast difference in this hazard pay because they are paid only when they are in a duty status. Reserve Component service members are required to maintain the same level of proficiency and incur the same risks of injury or death associated with jumping as their Active Component counterparts.
Issue Recommendation Change Parachute Jump Pay for service members to a monthly rate.
Military Component Active and Reserve Components
Demographic Group Soldiers
Subject Area Entitlements
Geographic Area Universal
Entered AFAP Nov 2002
Final Action Date Jun 2004
Accomplishments This issue was declared unattainable because the March 2004 study, required by the Senate Committee Report, PL 107-151, did not support elimination of the 1/30th rule.
