Find your equivalent Navy Reserve rate/rank Rate/Rank Converter

Rates, ranks and terminology that indicate a servicemember’s status differ by military branch. But grades (E-1 to E-9 for Enlisted and O-1 to O-10 for Officer) indicate how status equates across the uniformed services. Find where you stand and how your current pay grade compares.

In most cases, the Navy Reserve will honor the military rate/rank you currently hold. See the charts below to determine your equivalent rate/rank in the Navy Reserve. You may also qualify for specially designed positions for prior service military members. See if you qualify for one of these prior service opportunities.
