USAA’s Military Pay Posting Calendar


Use this link for the 2017 USAA Military Pay Deposit Dates.

Hey, y’all, this is the 2012 calendar.  I’ve asked my friends at USAA to update it, and I’m sure it will be up soon.  In the meantime, please don’t make plans based on last year’s calendar!

As part of my series on the direct deposit policies of various banks and credit unions, I’m attaching USAA‘s 2012 Military Pay Calendar here.  You can also find it as part of USAA’s Direct Deposit Pay and Military Pay FAQs.  Obviously, it is a little small to see here so you’ll have to click on the picture to see it.

I’ve taken it out because literally hundreds of people are looking at it each day, and it is still from 2012.  The 2013 calendar is anticipated to be released on 14 January 2013, after the Defense Finance and Accounting Service releases their updated calendar.  Looking for payday info?  See 15 January 2013 Military Pay for detailed deposit information.

One of the things I love about USAA is that their system is clear cut:  if you bank with USAA, and you have your active duty military pay deposited into your USAA account, you will always have your pay deposited exactly one business day early.  No crazy formulas or different rules for different accounts.  Just simple.  Just the way I like it.

Hope this helps!

    Wow, this sucks, I was expecting to get paid tonight by USAA. I was supposed to go to Arizona tomorrow. Guess not. I hate military pay days. Its so f***ed up.

  • why was s.s.not taken out of our pay in 1954—1`956? on my s.s. records it shows blank . I could use the mony now .

      S.s. for military started in 1957. However, one can receive s.s. credit for the peruiod you specified by showing s.s. a copy of your military record. In my cas this is the DD214. I am already retired and I have received credit for my service during the Korean war since the first days of my retirement.

    Me either. Wonder why
    Always paid early :(


    Having dealt with many issues and horrible customer service with USAA for the past several years, I hope this wasn’t some kind of attempt by someone to draw people to USAA with the implied promise that you’d get paid a day earlier than any other bank. We already moved our insurance and are moving our banking elsewhere and have never been happier to do it! If USAA has to try to trick people into doing business with them by saying you’ll get your pay one whole day earlier, that’s just sad – I hope people are truly smarter than that. I’d rather get paid a WEEK later by another bank than EVER go back!!!

        I have been with USAA for 53 years and have nothing but outstanding service.

    I have been with USAA Since 1989 and cannot complain about their service and support. In some of those years my credit hadn’t been the greatest but they are still there for me.

    • KateKashman

      Jennifer, they haven’t posted it yet. However, you can figure it out yourself with a few minutes time and a calendar. It is one business day before the official payday, as listed here:

      Hope that helps!

  • pete

    • Kate

      Pete, did you get paid on Saturday? That would really surprise me, and show that there is more I need to learn about USAA’s pay posting.
