    Okay, Jan 15 is on a Tuesday and our pay isn’t available until Monday, Jan 14. Oct 15 is on a Tuesday, but our pay is available on Friday, Oct 11. Was Jan 14 a typo?

    • KateKashman

      Austin, the calendar posted is correct. USAA pays one business day early, which means that your 15 January 2013 pay will be deposited on 14 January 2013. Monday, 14 October 2013 is the Columbus Day federal holiday. Therefore, one business day prior to Tuesday, 15 October 2013 is Friday, 11 October 2013.

      Hope that helps.

      Read your questions to friends out loud. Monday’s come before Tuesdays, 14 comes before 15. Won’t be available until blank makes no sense when you always get paid earlier.

    • jennifer d
  • Ryan

    Then why did we get paid on Friday Dec 28th when the last payday was Tuesday Jan 1st of this year? Last time I checked, Monday Dec 31st, new years eve, was not a federal holiday….hmmmmm. Mysterious.

    • KateKashman

      Ryan, 1 January is a federal holiday every year. It is never payday. The December end-of-month official payday is always on the last business day of the year. For 2012, it was 31 December 2012. Therefore, USAA paid one business day early, on Friday, 28 December 2012.

    • keith

      jan 1st is, and which means it has to post the friday before to be there monday, but will actualy be available saturday.. you are welcome

  • Ryan

    Then what about Tuesday Jan 1st of this year. We got paid Friday, Dec 28th.

  • a white

    so what day are we getting paid

    • KateKashman

      Alton, payday is Tuesday, 15 January 2013. What day you will get paid depends on the policies and practices of your bank or credit union. If you click on the link above, next to the 15 January payday, it will tell you about the most popular banking institutions and when their customers should expect to see their pay.

  • Joci

    usaa member here, we’ve not been paid yet either??

  • breana

    what time is the money usually deposited on pay day

    • CB
    • Colleen
    • KateKashman

      Breana, it can be any time. You might find some more information in What Time Will I Get Paid:… From USAA specifically, their website states, “USAA Bank processes direct deposits over a period of 24 hours. It’s not possible for us to give you an exact time; the release of funds occurs throughout the course of that particular business day; ensuring the funds are available on the morning of the actual pay day.” Don’t worry, folks, it will be deposited today.

        • KateKashman

          I’m a bit confused by your question, Lisa. From what I am reading, I am understanding that you are a military spouse. Your husband has set up an allotment so that when he is paid, a portion of his pay is directed into your account. If it is a true allotment, set up as an allotment through the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), then it should be deposited into your account on Monday. Whether your bank or credit union chooses to deposit your funds early will depends on their policy and practices. If it is an automatic transfer between bank accounts, it will be governed by the instructions given when the transfer was initiated, and the policies and practices of the financial institution. Hope that helps!

  • Molly Jenkins

    Just wondering about what time we should expect our paycheck to show up on our account. I read somewhere else that it would be done by 6am central time. Since we are posted in Hawaii, should I expect to see the funds available by 2am?

    • KateKashman

      Molly, there is no particular time that the pay will be deposited. This is a big process with literally thousands of transactions involved. Even computers can not make it happen instantaneously. Per USAA”s Direct Deposit FAQs, “USAA Bank processes direct deposits over a period of 24 hours. It’s not possible for us to give you an exact time; the release of funds occurs throughout the course of that particular business day; ensuring the funds are available on the morning of the actual pay day.” Hope that helps.

      • Leon W

        about 6 or 7 am usually

  • Stephanie

    Ok today is the 28th of March and tomorrow’s Good Friday and I’m sure you guys don’t open anytime tomorrow. Are you guys open Saturday March 30th 2013? I was wondering when I will get paid for the 1st of April because it falls on Monday of next week.

    • KateKashman

      Stephanie, USAA will pay on Friday, 29 March 2013. Good Friday is not a federal or banking holiday. Hope that helps!

  • Amber

    Good question Stephanie however I believe that banks, post office, etc are open tomorrow. Good Friday is not a Federal holiday but rather a Christian one. I know that the securities market will be closed tomorrow however USAA’s Facebook page states they will be open tomorrow for normal business. My guess is we will get paid tomorrow as usual, one business day prior to the 1st or 15th.

  • zach

    is this for sure because i just got a message saying trading will be closed tommorow

  • Tracy

    Does this apply to military retirement pay as well?

    • KateKashman

      Tracy, to the best of my knowledge, USAA deposits retired pay one business day early as well. Readers?

  • damein

    Why is it the the time your deposit hit your account always change. My last paycheck hit my account at about 2:00am, but this paycheck it’s 5:17am and I haven’t recieved my money yet. So undependable.

  • Layne Marie

    My fiancé left for basic on April 28, 2013.
    I don’t know when I’ll get money on my card. Does it take longer to get it? I am new at this and need help. Thanks.

    • KateKashman

      Layne, I’m not sure what you mean by “on your card.” Your fiance will see his first paycheck deposited into his designated bank account somewhere between two and six weeks after starting his basic military training. If he began on 28 April, I’d guesstimate that he’ll be paid the first time on 31 May, but it could be 14 June. His pay will be deposited into the bank account for which he provided the deposit information.

      • militaryme

        Also, don’t forget-it’s not your money dearie. It’s his money, he earned it. Please don’t be one of those horrible people expecting to clean out his bank account while he’s away on training. Your everlasting soul will burn in hell for that, just so you know.

  • Jawnie

    so when do we get paid this week.. Thursday or friday?

  • KateKashman

    Mr. Castro, according to the calendar, and USAA’s deposit policies, USAA members should see their pay posted on Monday, 30 September 2013. Hope that helps.

  • Chachi

    Does this payday become available on Saturday the 28th?

  • Melissa

    Does USAA process deposits on Saturday? Our travel pay was released from DFAS yesterday but hasn’t shown in our account. It’s not the same as direct deposit paycheck but I thought since I can’t find the answer (what days USAA processes any type of depo sit other than pay) you might be able to help me KateKashman. Thank you in advance.

  • KateKashman

    Melissa, sorry for the delay in responding. It has been C-R-A-Z-Y dealing with the government shutdown and your comment almost got lost in the crowd.

    I’m guessing by now that your pay has deposited, but for future reference, USAA does not post deposits on the weekend.

    Hope all is well, and thanks for reading! Kate

  • Jbird3

    So, What Are The Chances Of Our Funds Being Available On 11 OCT 13, Amid All The Uncertainty Surrounding The Shutdown. Are We Still Green Light Go ?

    • Emily

      The military pay will be deposited on Friday October 11th because Monday the 14th is Columbus Day.

  • Sarah

    Today Is Oct 15 And My Husband Still Hasn’t Gotten Paid…What’s Going On?

  • Sarah Mcmillin
  • Do these dates apply to the disability payments also from the VA? According to this payments will be available the day before thanksgiving. That would be fantastic if I get my disability the day before because I was trying to figure out if because of Thanksgiving I wouldn’t see it until the day after which is the 29th a Friday.

    • Melissa

      Patrick, I am guessing our disability payments will be in the accts on the day before Thanksgiving since technically we would get paid on Friday, and with USAA making it available the business day prior it should be there. So far my pymts have deposited the same time as my husbands. Will see tomorrow I guess :)

  • Lindsey

    Patrick, I think the best way to know that answer is to compare your previous checks and compare the dates that usaa gave, if they match then you should be fine. I would call the VA first to verify though. Ask what date they date the check, if its the first of Dec then you should get your money on nov 27 because companies that do direct deposit send their money the buisness day before to the banks.

    • Call the VA? I don’t feel like making my blood pressure rise today by doing that. The actual pay day is December 1st. Being the weekend it will come in on December 29th at the latest. The whole thanksgiving thing is throwing me off though because I don’t know if its considered a 4 day weekend or not.

      • KateKashman

        Dear Mr. Desimone, the actual payday is 29 November because 1 December is a Sunday. Are your deposits usually posted one day before the actual payday? If so, then you should have your deposit on Wednesday, 27 November. I thought that USAA did disability deposits one business day early, as well, but I can’t find confirmation of this.

        • Your correct. USAA does make funds available the day before. Its for any paycheck military or civilian. Not all banks do this. Not sure if this chart would count though for VA Disability paydate is technically the 1st of the month. But USAA would make it that Friday the 29th like you said because of the weekend. I just wanted to know if because of Thanksgiving that the funds might be available on the 27th. I tried asking USAA on their facebook page and they directed me back to this chart. I don’t know why they can never give me a straight up answer….its like talking to the VA hospital.

        • oh wait ok I just caught what you said. Your right its Sunday so the actualy deposit would be Friday and funds available on the 27th….. awesome thanks. Wasn’t thinking straight. Need to up my medication lol.

  • James Shelton

    Technician GS payday is Thursday, Christmas is Wed. which is usually when I get paid. Will I get paid on Tues. ?

  • bikergirl2006

    do any one know when we get paid by its being the holidays last year it was the 28th DEC 2012

    • KateKashman

      bikergirl2006, USAA will process deposits for the 31 December 2013 payday on Monday, 30 December 2013.

  • Nicholas Roberts

    So will the money be in our account Mon dec 30 or in the morning of dec 30

    • KateKashman

      Nicholas, it is usually in the morning, but it can be any time during the day.

  • dan Mac

    Does anybody know if VA payments will come thru tomorrow the 30th? The chart matches up to the VA payments as well. So im hoping it will happen so I can pay my electric before they turn it off lol

    • KateKashman

      It is typical for the VA payments to be deposited early, but it can not be guaranteed. I hope it comes, too!
