PAY AND BENEFITS
We offer both active duty and reserve Coast Guard men and women a competitive salary and an impressive package of benefits. In fact, a young person just starting out in the workplace would be hard-pressed to match our benefits package, which includes money for college; free medical, dental and eye care; and more.
Our men and women also have the chance for raises and promotions based on merit.
Beyond these material benefits are benefits that are invaluable. Your child will accomplish and do things he or she never thought possible. Coast Guard men and women have experiences that just don't materialize in the civilian world. They learn how to lead, develop a sense of discipline and get a true understanding of the value of teamwork.
Most importantly, our Coast Guardsmen experience personal growth as they are instilled with the Coast Guard core values–honor, respect and devotion to duty.
Enlisted Pay and Benefit
A competitive salary, free health care, and tuition assistance are just the beginning of the benefits your son or daughter will reap as an active-duty member of the Coast Guard. (The tuition assistance program may vary and is dependent upon funding. Speak to your recruiter about program details and eligibility.)
Officer Pay and Benefits
We reward our officers with a generous salary and a comprehensive benefits package that includes free medical, dental, and eye care.
Reserve Pay and Benefits
Additional pay and a host of benefits virtually unattainable from any other part-time job can be earned by your child as a reservist in the Coast Guard.
Reserve Officer Pay and Benefits
Your son or daughter can supplement his or her income and get extra benefits when he or she becomes a reserve officer.
