    Question how much is the difference really going to be?

    Advertisements
    Hi, Hubby is due to go to boot in March. I'm stressing of course about the difference in pay. His dad has offered to off set our expenses while he's in boot. (it's a good thing ) My question is....how much will he really make. Pay is SOOO confusing to me. I ask him "how much will you make" him: "i dunno". So right now he makes about 33K/yr I wanna make sure we can pay our bills, not even the extra stuff we like to do. I also make about 33K a year. So we make pretty good I guess. We do have a lot of debt, but we will be done with that in about a year....which I'll be SOOO glad.
    He's going to be a Navy Diver and enter into Boot as an e2, then after boot an e-3 then, once he's certified as a navy diver (after 4 months of dive school in FL) he'll be an e-4. So can someone tell me how much he'll bring home? We have a son that is 4 and I'm assuming he'll get dive pay after he's certified. We'll get BAH after he's done with boot, but is there anything else I'm missing?

    It's true, you DO get BAH on the first check
    You'll get the separation allowance on the second one

    here is the BAH link. you type in your zip ( since you will get BAH off where you live while he is in boot) and his paygrade and it's with dependents ( you are his dependent)

    thanks ladies. He went to his DEP meeting tonight and there was an XO there and confirmed the BAH. That's SOOO awesome! We were going to be doing so much worse with out that. Do you know if they break that up into seperate paychecks, or is it just on one paycheck. I'm not sure how they pay the special pays.
