The problem with only paying a reduced rate for downtime is that you
only know
the active/passive ratio when they get back.  It is much easier to pay
time-dilated marines a lower salary, and let compound interest handle
rest.  That being said, you have to ensure that returning, retiring
do not cause great dislocations in the economy.

Re-investing their uncollected pay is good for the economy, but you have
keep the veterans from liquifying their wealth and leaving society.  No
