If a Member is eligible to receive both SDP and AP payments in any respective category, they may elect which Special Pay (SDP or AP) they wish to receive.      b. No one may be in concurrent receipt of two categories of SDP.         (1) If a Member is serving in a billet which is authorized SDP, and meets the eligibility standards for another SDP, the Member is authorized the higher of the two pay amounts.          (2) If a member meets criteria for two categories of SDP with equal pay levels, the Member is authorized SDP for the category that best matches his/her primary position at the unit.       c. Effect of injury, illness, or disability on continued SDP or AP eligibility.          (1) In the event that a Member is injured, falls ill, or is otherwise physically disabled while performing the duty for which SDP or AP is paid, SDP or AP may be paid for up to 90 days during period of the treatment for the condition that would otherwise render the member ineligible for the special pay. The SDP or AP will be suspended on the 91st day following the disqualifying injury, illness, or physical disability.           (2) Any injuries, illness, or physical disabilities incurred under any circumstances that are not directly related to the performance of duty for which the SDP or AP is paid will result in suspension of the special pay effective the day the member's CO determines the Member is no longer able to perform the duty for which the special pay is authorized. 10. SDP/AP eligibility terminates: the day before the member departs PCS, the date the Member is removed from duty by competent authority (e.g., relief for cause), or once the Member is no longer qualified (e.g., does not complete four watches during a month as a Rescue Swimmer or deployed TDY for 14 days as a Rescue Swimmer or any combination of both during the month, does not meet or is not expected to meet the 175 days deployment, TDY, etc.). Additionally, SDP/AP terminates the day a member departs a unit with no expectation of return prior to separation or retirement (e.g., leave or excused absence a.k.a., "permissive orders"). 11. Responsibilities:         a. Members authorized SDP or AP under this ALCOAST shall:           (1) Read and understand the conditions for eligibility for their respective special pay in this ALCOAST;            (2) Notify their CO of any condition or circumstance that might affect their eligibility for continuation of SDP or AP; and            (3) When their eligibility for SDP or AP has been terminated or suspended on account of transfer or other reasons, review their statements of semi-monthly income (payslips) to confirm that the special pay previously authorized is no longer credited to their pay accounts. If the special pay has not been stopped when it reasonably should have, members must set aside the suspected erroneous payment for eventual repayment and notify their administrative office in writing of the suspected overpayment.         b. COs must timely notify their SPOs of members' SDP/AP eligibility or loss of eligibility including certifying the documentation for a reservist. Unit P&A offices must regularly review affected members' continued eligibility for SDP or AP and provide timely notice to SPOs when members lose eligibility.         c. SPOs must submit the proper Direct Access input to commence/terminate SDP/AP payment as appropriate. 12. REF (B) outlines SDP/AP policy. Questions about SDP/AP eligibility should be directed to the appropriate HQ program manager. For questions regarding SDP/AP policy contained in REF (B), contact YNCS J. L. Bruner or CWO K. L.

tour.  The Marine elected and was paid AIP in the form of a lump sum payment pursuant to a two year AIP agreement ending on 31 October 2022.  In this example, the Marine would keep the lump sum payment and would receive additional payments of AIP 150 dollars per month from 1 January 2022 through 31 October 2022.  Beginning on 1 November 2022, the Marine would then receive AIP 300 dollars per month through the end of his/her tour (i.e., 31 October 2023). 3.B.3.  Special Operations Capability Specialist (SOCS).  Marines with AMOS 8071, in the grade of E3 or higher, and who are filling a 8071, 8002, or 5812 billet are authorized 150 dollars per month or a 7,700 dollar lump sum AIP for a 60-month tour. 3.B.4.  Drill Instructor (AMOS 0911).  Marines with AMOS 0911 and assigned to 0911 billets at Marine Corps Recruit Depots, Officer Candidate School at Quantico, VA or Newport, RI, or United States Naval Academy (USNA)(UIC MS5108) are authorized SDAP 150 dollars per month and AIP 150 dollars per month.  Marines may elect to receive a 4,900 dollar lump sum AIP for a 36-month tour in lieu of the monthly AIP payments of 150 dollars.  Marines who volunteer for a Drill Instructor class are eligible for 10,000 dollar VSI.  Marines who volunteer for a 24-month, second tour are eligible for 6,700 dollar VSI.  Marines who volunteer for and are selected via the Assistance Marine Officer Board to serve a 36-month, second tour Drill Instructor in a 0911 BMOS at the USNA (UIC MS5108) are eligible for the 10,000 dollar VSI.  Such selection must be for the assignment at USNA that begins on or after 1 October 2022. 3.C.  Administration. 3.C.1.  The changes described in the subparagraphs of 3.B will occur systematically within the Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS) for those Marines who are currently serving in designated billets.  However, local administrative action and/or unit diary reporting is required to implement these changes for Marines who join one of the billets concerned after the end of January’s update and extract date. 3.C.2.  Lump sum AIP.  For non-PMOS assignments (e.g., Drill Instructor, Recruiter, etc.), the number of months pledged in the lump sum AIP agreement can be less than but cannot exceed the tour length for the assignment or the Marine’s End of Active Service (EAS), whichever occurs first.  Whereas Marines who are serving in PMOS assignments (e.g., Career Recruiter, Critical Skill Operators, etc.) can agree, in the lump sum agreement, to serve beyond the tour length but cannot exceed their EAS. 3.C.3.  VSI.  Marines who volunteered for a 24-month, second tour SDA and extend their tour to a 36-month tour are not eligible for an increase of VSI payment from 6,700 to 10,000 dollars. 3.C.4.  Per reference (c), Marines who do not serve in the assignment for the number of months specified in the lump sum agreement shall repay the unearned, prorated portion of the lump sum AIP and/or VSI payment.  However, the repayment of the unearned, prorated portion of the lump sum payment shall not be required if the Marine is unable to complete the agreement due to circumstances reasonably beyond the Marine’s control and not a result of the Marine’s misconduct.  Commanders (O-6 or higher) of such Marines must determine whether the circumstances of not completing the agreement are reasonably beyond the Marine’s control and meet one of the authorized circumstances (e.g., death, retirement or separation due to a combat-related operation or disability, etc.) in Table 2-1 of reference (c).  The authority to make such determinations should be used prudently.  This decision must be documented, communicated to the Personnel Administration Center or local reporting unit, posted to the Marine’s Official Military Personnel File, and the appropriate diary transaction completed prior to the Marine’s transfer from the command. 4.  This MARADMIN is applicable to the Total Force. 5.  Release authorized by LtGen

Military bases below negative-20 degrees will soon get a bonus pay

A "Cold Weather" special duty pay was included in recent military legislation.

By Patty Nieberg | Published Dec 15, 2023 5:14 PM EST

Soldier in cold environment

Troops who endure freezing temperatures may soon find their hands a little toastier in pockets lined with some extra cash.

Under a measure included in the annual defense bill passed this week, troops in cold weather stations will see a new “Cold Weather Location” special duty pay for assignments where “the temperature is expected to drop below -20°F,” based on the 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map published by the Department of Agriculture. 

Exactly how the new pay will end up in paychecks is still to be worked out, Pentagon officials told Task & Purpose. Which locations might be eligible and how much the pay might be can’t be determined until the National Defense Authorization Act becomes law. But with a cut-off temperature of -20 degrees, it may apply to troops stationed in places like Pituffik Space Base (formerly Thule Air Base) in Greenland, the 22,000 active duty personnel in Alaska and even members assigned to famously frigid Air Force bases in the upper midwest.

“It is quite possible that it is a recognition that it’s uncomfortable to be living in a cold climate. But there’s part of me that thinks it’s more tied to the remoteness than it is to the temperature specifically,” said Kate Kuzminski, director of the Military, Veterans, and Society Program at the Center for New American Security, a Washington DC think tank. 

There are some compounding challenges for troops living on the Northern-most bases, she said. In places like Alaska, half the year has drastically reduced daylight hours, and the cost of living is higher due to the need to ship goods from the continental U.S.

In 2021, the Army saw 17 suicides out of its 11,000 soldiers based in Alaska. In 2022, the Army’s Command Sgt. Maj. Vern Daley Jr. wrote a letter to troops pledging increased access to mental health care after four soldiers committed suicide in one month.

“The services were trying to build out special recruiting pays for social workers and counselors to live out there and serve the community,” Kuzminski said.

Other troops that see the kind of extremely cold temperatures specified in the new law are at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, the Army Reserve installation at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin and Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana, said John Castellani, a research physiologist specializing in cold environments with the Army’s Research Institute of Environmental Medicine.

“The big thing about incentive pays is that they acknowledge that there is an extra level of effort required in those assigned to specific roles or locations as compared to their counterparts at other installations or in other roles,” Kuzminski said.

During the summer of 2022, House Republicans began pushing for an extra incentive pay for cold weather to be included in the NDAA, much like hazardous pay, but the White House pushed back on it and basically said, ‘Hey, we’ve got all these other incentive pays that already occur. This might not be the best use of resources,’” she said.

The most relevant comparison is probably Navy pay for people aboard a ship as a duty station with a more remote lifestyle, Kuzminski said. Dubbed “Career Sea Pay,” sailors can see extra payments between $50 to $150 a month.

Kuzminski also believes the special bonus pay is connected to the strategic competition between the U.S., China and Russia over the Arctic. 

The 2022 U.S. National Strategy for the Arctic Region notes the area’s extensive natural resources and the security implications for protecting American citizens and defending its sovereign territory. As climate change continues to impact the natural landscape of the Arctic, nations are also looking to capitalize on newly evolving shipping routes .

“Military installations in Alaska are strategic in that it helps the United States have a pivotal place from which they can address issues in the Indo Pacific and in Russia,” she said.

It’s unclear why the fiscal 2024 National Defense Authorization Act used the USDA’s 2012 map instead of the 2023 version released in November . Plant hardiness zone designations represent the “average lowest winter temperature” at a given location over a specific time period, according to the department. 

“Notably, the 2023 map for Alaska is ‘warmer’ than the 2012 version,” according to the USDA.

Kuzminski said it probably has to do with the fact that the NDAA language was submitted in the summer while the new map came out months later. Nonetheless, the 2012 map could be “more inclusive,” she said – meaning more troops qualify for this special duty pay.

The measure was included in the fiscal year NDAA version passed by the House and Senate earlier this week, which is now headed to the President’s desk to be signed into law.

The special bonus pay is in addition to the 5.2% base pay increase for all service members and civilian employees authorized by Congress.
