NIF uses a very egalitarian and simple system for peoples private paychecks. Regardless of
your branch, you get paid weekly according to the follwing table in Imperial Credits.
Your pay is transferred to your account in the NIF Uni-Galactic Banking System, where it
will draw 2.5% interest annually unless you withdraw it. Money can be withdrawn in credit
sticks or cash. Freelancers are paid on a case-by-case basis. Shadow Hand do not exist,
but if they did, they would be paid as O-8, with the Prime Executor at O-10.
Account balance for deceased personnel is available to the closest relatives. Account
balance for deceased personnel without relatives is transferred to the Veteran Widows Fund.
In addition to the listed payscale, any member in military service receives an additional
experience bonus of 200 Credits times pay grade annually per full year of service. An O-5
with six years of service would receive 5*200*6 = 6,000 Credits extra.
