Submariner Pay & Benefits
As a Submariner you'll receive a highly competitive salary, special allowances, generous superannuation and a range of attractive benefits.
Much more than just a good salary
This allowance is paid to qualified Submariners in recognition of the difficulties and hardships of living and working on a submarine. It's the Submarine Service equivalent of a Seagoing Allowance, but it is a higher amount. The allowance awarded is linked to the time you have served at sea and increases as you spend more years there. It starts at $17,598 per year and rises every year. You must have completed all the training necessary to qualify for your Dolphins to receive this allowance. After nine years of Submariner service an additional $50,000 a year is awarded as Submarine Capability Assurance Payment.
