All Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) personnel are Ministry of Defence civilian employees and are, therefore, subject to HM Treasury Civil Servant Pay Guidance.

For the pay period 2008-09 to 2010-11 the settlement was for a 1.9% increase to all pay scales for each of the three years.

For the pay period 2011-13, in line with public sector pay restraint, there were no pay increases.

For the pay period 2013-15, again in line with the rest of the public sector, RFA personnel received a 1% increase to consolidated pay for each year.

For the pay period 2015-18, a 1% pay settlement was agreed for RFA personnel each year.

The pay settlement for 2018-19 was 1.5%.
