Hazardous Duty Incentive Pay (HDIP)
What is Hazardous Duty Incentive Pay (HDIP) and who is entitled to receive it?
Service Members who perform any of the following duties can earn Hazardous Duty Incentive Pay (HDIP):
The monthly rate for each type of HDIP is $150 with an exception to High Altitude-Low Opening (HALO) parachute jumps. Service members performing HALO jumps will receive $225 per month for HALO jumps. Note that only one type of parachute duty payment (regular or HALO) is authorized per qualifying period, and the higher of the two payments will be made.
A Service Member can receive up to two different types of HDIPs during the same period if he/she performs more than one of these duties as required by the mission. HDIP begins on the day the member reports for duty and ceases on the termination date published in the orders or when the member is no longer required to perform the hazardous duty, whichever occurs first. The HDIP entitlement(s) will be prorated based on the number of days the member spends performing these duties during the a month.
