Question: How is Army mid-month pay calculated?
For the life of me I cannot figure how mid-month pay is calculated. It varies by as much as $200 from one month to the next. It’s not a simple half of all pay minus deductions minus allotments; it’s not half of standard pay minus standard deductions (the part that’s the same absolutely every month) minus allotments. It has been anywhere from $40 to $400 less than either of those amounts. Our finances are so tight I only have about $20 to spare based on the monthly pay — and not being able to count on a set amount for either paycheck makes it really hard to budget.
Answer: You need to loosen up your finances..
Go talk to your pay office, or read whats underneath your LES.. it says what was taken, from there you should be able to figure the rest out i think.
