As part of his transition into national service, President Donald Trump has begun giving out more money to state and local military organizations, including the National Guard.
But how much will you get if you want to join the National Guards?
According to a report by Axios, the NationalGuard salary ranges from $160,000 to $270,000 depending on how long you have been a member.
National Guard salaries range from $80,000-$160,00 per year for those who have served at least 10 years, according to the National Center for State Budget and Policy.
The National Guard’s primary mission is to provide security for our nation and our people.
National Guardsmen and National Guard members who are retired or otherwise not serving in uniform are eligible for the National Defense Stockpile.
There is a one-year waiting period for military service, but that is waived if the member has been discharged or released from military service.
The pay range for members who have been on active duty in the last five years is $70,000, according the National Service Commission.
The National Guard has more than 500,000 members, including those who are active duty or reserve members.
The median annual salary for National Guard service is $64,000.
For example, if you are a member of the National Military Police and you have served a total of 30 years, you would be eligible for a National Guard salary of $60,000 per year, according Axios.
For members who were on active reserve duty in that same period, they would be entitled to a National Defense Retired Pay.
National Guard members pay $16.13 for each month of service, which is more than what they would make on the job.
In addition, the average annual salary of the average National Guard member is $71,890.
According to the report, if the average member who is currently on active-duty service earns $100,000 a year, they will make about $40,000 annually.
If the average active-service member makes $150,000 and is eligible for National Defense Reserve Pay, they should expect to earn $180,000 in their first year on the National Security Reserve.
National Defense Reserve is a retirement program that gives the National Army Reserve an annual stipend of $2,200 per month, according a 2016 report from the National Reserve Personnel Center.
The maximum amount of pay a National Army Reservist can receive is $10,000 or a $100 bonus.
If a National Reserve member makes more than $1 million a year on base, they are eligible to receive an additional $500.
