DOD Removing 20 Locations From List of Areas That Qualify For Imminent Danger Pay

Among them Serbia, the Gulf of Oman, and East Timor


The Defense Department has removed 20 areas from its list of locations that qualify for imminent danger pay, effective June 1, potentially affecting tens of thousands of troops.

As of that date, service members deployed to these areas no longer will qualify for the $225 monthly imminent danger stipend. The change would affect thousands serving on land or on ships in those areas.
