How to read a Rate Table
Choose a row from the left side column and a column from the top row. Where those two choices intersect is the rate payable based on the conditions shown in the table. Some tables have few conditions, some have more. Sometimes there are add-in rates, such as Aid & Attendance (A&A) allowances. Occasionally calculations must be made to determine the rate.
