Military Compensation

Developing and offering the appropriate military compensation packages—including wages, health care, reenlistment bonuses, retirement, leave, dependent benefits, and survivor benefits—is necessary to attract and retain active duty and reserve personnel with essential skills. RAND has conducted extensive research to advise policymakers on developing compensation options to attract and retain a military workforce capable of meeting a nation’s strategic goals.

Only a loved one, family, child, fiancé, sibling or who was placed as next of Kin is entitled to the compensation fund of a deployed soldier.

Most soldiers are deployed to dangerous parts of the world to maintain peace. The compensation plan which includes $500,000 cash monthly for 6 months and other entitlemenst are received on behalf of the deployed serviceman/woman.

The receiver can also request for other items aside cash which would be made available to him/her.
