15 August 2011 Military Pay

Well, thankfully the most recent military pay emergency was resolved.  Now on to the August mid-month pay.  Payday is on Monday, 15 August, 2011.   Most military members will see their pay deposited sometime on Monday.

Some banks offer early deposit as a benefit to their members.  Active duty service members who have their pay deposited to banks who offer early direct deposit (USAA, NFCU, PMCU, and others) will see their deposits post on Friday, 12 August, 2011.  It can be anytime on Friday, not necessarily first thing in the morning. For example,  NFCU members with Active Duty checking will see their pay will post overnight on Friday to be available for use on Saturday.  I know some other banks use this schedule as well, with the funds not available until Saturday.

Hope some of you find this helpful!

    Thank you so much for posting this information!

  • On the August 1st payday I received my pay on July 28th (Thursday)… August 1st fell on a Monday, just like August 15th. Should I expect my August 15th paycheck to also come in on Thursday August 11th?

      Jeffrey, that depends on a bunch of things. Who is your bank? When do they usual release funds for a Monday payday? Was it fully released on Thursday, or just posted to be posted, but actually the money was available for use on Friday? Where are you located?

      I’m sorry to be so evasive but there are so many variables!

    I would like to know because I just got out of the navy how does the pay work. What I mean is on the 15 th of the month is that for working the 1st to the 15th of the month and the 1st of the month is that check for the 16-30th. I keep getting different answers please help me out

    • KateKashman

      Shana, it doesn’t work quite that way. Service members pay is calculated on a monthly basis. The mid-month pay is basically an advance on your full end-of-month pay. From what I have been told, the final pay sometimes come on the next regularly scheduled payday, and sometimes it is delayed a bit. I wish I had a better answer for you…readers?
