Pay and Entitlements

For Marines

The pay and entitlements staff ensures that wounded, ill and injured (WII) Marines receive all pay and entitlements due to them. While working to return to duty or leave the service and return to their civilian community, WII Marines may be entitled to several pay and allowances in addition to their basic pay.

Please refer to the Wounded, Ill and Injured Compensation & Benefits Handbook for more information.  This Handobook will link you to all of the resource sites you will need, it will answer most of your immediate questions and lead you to the right places to answer the rest.

For family members and caregivers

Marines who are deemed to be seriously or seriously injured may have Non-Medical Attendants travel to their designated military treatment facilities. Designated personnel provides and invaluable service to our wounded, ill and injured Marines. Additionally, their assistance is vital during the transition from an inpatient to an outpatient status and facilitates their recovery and rehabilitation effort. Designated personnel performing such duties and occurring transporation cost may be reimbursed transporation and per diem under the Joint Travel Regulations.
