Military ‘Tech Pay’: RRP vs EPRA

In 2018, the Royal Navy introduced a recruitment and retention payment (RRP) for naval service engineers, which is paid as a daily rate to those who are OR-4 and above in lieu of the engineering professional recognition award (EPRA) which is paid to Army personnel.

Army personnel do not qualify for the naval payment, but they are eligible for the EPRA if they hold the relevant qualifications and are registered with the appropriate professional body.

This is currently worth up to £3,000, paid as a lump sum.

Personnel can get more details from the Royal Signals whole life development team.
