Incentive and Special Pay

FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY PAY


Officers and enlisted members proficient in foreign languages may be able to supplement their basic pay with Foreign Language Proficiency Pay/Bonus (FLPP/FLPB). This discretionary payment incentivizes service members to acquire and advance their skills in foreign languages and dialects, which improves mission requirement capabilities. Each service secretary certifies FLPP annually, based on:

  • Qualifications in a career linguist duty specialty
  • Attendance in specified training
  • Assignment to duties requiring foreign language proficiency
  • Proficiency in a foreign language deemed critical

Service members must be deemed proficient in a combination of at least two of the three modalities—Listening (L), Reading (R), and Speaking (S)— of their Service’s discretion, in a language on the Department of Defense’s Strategic Language List (DoD SLL).

Rates Payable

Depending on how they test, servicemen and women can earn between $100 and $500 per month for a single foreign language or dialect. FLPP is payable in addition to all other pay and allowances, but members are not authorized to receive both FLPP I (Career Linguist) and FLPP II (Non-Career) simultaneously. They may, however, receive a bonus for aptitude in multiple languages, provided the amount does not exceed the limit, which is $1,000 per month/$12,000 annually. Members of the Selected Reserve who meet the same requirements but perform a partial, qualifying year of service can also receive the bonus pay with their monthly amount prorated.
