Filter by category

01
Base Salary
Every active duty Guardian is paid equally based on rank and years of service. But your salary is just part of the package. From the moment you put on your uniform, you’re eligible for additional compensation based on your job and station.
02
Insurance
The Space Force offers Guardians and their families top-of-the-line, low-rate insurance plans, each with comprehensive medical and dental care at military or civilian facilities. Additionally, we provide full pay and allowances for sick days and life insurance.
03
Retirement
The Space Force offers a generous retirement plan which operates within the Blended Retirement System, providing benefits similar to those of many civilian 401(k) plans with employer-matched contributions. This plan combines two main sources of retirement savings: a monthly retirement income for Guardians who serve a minimum of 20 years and the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) which includes automatic and matching government contributions.
04
Recreation
Most Space Force bases are equipped with golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools and full-service gyms, along with arts-and-crafts facilities. All are either free for use or are available at lower rates than similar facilities off base.
05
Vacation and Travel
All military Guardians get 30 days of paid vacation per year. They can travel on Air Force aircraft to almost any U.S. state and many international destinations. Additionally, for destinations near military facilities, Guardians qualify for reduced-rate hotel lodging.
06
Education
Enlisting in the Space Force offers a wide range of educational opportunities, which include scholarships for Guardians who wish to pursue ongoing education. Enlisted Guardians can receive up to 100% tuition assistance through the Air Force Tuition Assistance Program, the Montgomery GI Bill or Post-9/11 GI Bill. Members select which option to take based on what’s best for them.
