You start getting paid right from Basic. However you dont have a whole lot spend it on (unless you have an ATM card and access to an ATM).

Yup, in Tech School you'll eventually be able to go to off base. You should be able to go anywhere in the base from the time you start, but you have to be in your uniform. But after a few weeks I think you get the chance to wear civvies.

Also here is a PDF of the pay rates. It's really hard to say how much I was getting in Basic and Tech school since we didn't get a LES (pay stubs). I remember after 6 weeks basic as an E-1 I had at least $2000 in cash.

EDIT: the pay rate is before state and federal taxes

how long till you can leave base? so tech school pay isnt E-1 pay, but less? not that it matters, im gonna be really busy in school for my MOS (EOD)

EDIT: didnt see after basic, im pretty sure basic pays less but tech school pays E-1 pay, correct?

I went through Basic and Tech school in Aug-Oct 95 , so it's been a looooong time. My Tech school was really short though (1.5 months?) so I think that it was the 3rd week that we were able to get to bo off base.

As far as the pay, you get paid the same in basic and Tech which for you will be E-1 pay, since you are EOD you may get hazard pay in Tech school too. It also sounds like you will also make E-2 towards the end of your Tech school. I believe you get E-2 after 6 months in the service.

NP, if you still have any questions about your pay you can probably ask your TI/DI/MTI in Tech School when you get there.
