Pay survey going out to troops

Thousands of troops are getting emails inviting them to participate in an official, first-of-its-kind survey seeking to gauge their feelings about their pay and benefits package.

The survey targeting hundreds of thousands of troops was launched June 3 by the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission, which Congress created last year to tackle the thorny issues involved in the Pentagonís efforts to overhaul pay and benefits with an eye toward reducing personnel budget costs.

The survey asks troops which pays and benefits are most important to them and their families. It aims to identify which pay and benefits programs are most highly valued and also those that may be inefficient because their cost to the government exceeds their perceived value by troops.

The commission will use the survey results in recommending any changes to the current compensation system. The commissionís official report with final recommendations are due to Congress by next February.
