Navy Boosts Recruiter Incentives After Falling Short in 2023

Both Special Duty Assignment Pay and Assignment Incentive Pay are offered for recruiting positions.

The U.S. Navy is offering extra incentive pay to recruiters after the service fell short of its staffing goals by over 7,450 in 2023’s fiscal year. The military branch is offering hundreds of dollars a month extra for certain regions and grades.

“The best part of this program is that when combined with the Special Duty Assignment Pay, the financial incentive to become a Recruiter is significant,” stated Lieutenant Commander Douglas Duckert, Navy Recruiting Command director of military manning. “I think that this will definitely help in markets that need highly motivated recruiters.”

“The expansion of the Assignment Incentive Pay program underscores the Navy’s commitment to recognizing and rewarding the hard work of our recruiters,” said Lieutenant Julian Miracuartas. “This initiative not only provides financial incentives but also enhances career growth opportunities within the Navy.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Carlos Del Toro as he heads the Navy and Marine Corps.
  • For U.S. Navy officials as they seek to attract recruiters through financial incentives.
  • For all U.S. military personnel, both on active duty and those in the reserves, as they serve.
