2014 Active Duty Military Paydays

Looking for the 2014 retired military paydays?

Plan ahead with the 2015 Active Duty Paydays.

One of the benefits of being in the military is having a consistent paycheck.  It helps a lot if you know exactly when you’ll get paid.  While bank and credit union posting policies may vary, military paydays are very predictable.  Paydays are on the 1st and 15th of each month, unless that day falls on a weekend or holiday.  If the 1st or 15th fall on a weekend or holiday, payday is on the business day before the weekend or holiday.   So, for 2014, we have…

Tuesday, 31 December 2013 (technically the end-of-month pay for December 2013) (see 31 December 2013 Military Pay)

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 (see 15 January 2014 Military Pay)

      Thanks for being a great editor, Ian. I appreciate everyone\’s help.

  • And there is no Friday, February 29, 2014.

    • KateKashman

      Thanks, Tara – I can\’t imagine where my eyes were :) and why in the heck I would think that next year was a leap year.

    Aren’t all military personnel required to have direct deposit? If so, the computers can transfer the money on whatever day is set up. Shouldn’t matter if it’s a weekend or holiday.

    • BrandonHayes

      The direct deposit is to a bank, which has to be open to clear the deposit, and usually takes a day to process. Therefore the government plans ahead and gets the money to the banks a little early, so that the service member is paid before these weekends or holidays.

  • KateKashman

    You are absolutely correct – thanks!

    Okay so I was looking at the pay chart and for an e1 pay is $1,531.51 with up to two years of service. So my question is do the service members get that full amount twice a month or is that for the whole month or $1,531.51 the first pay check (the 1st) and half of that the next (15th)? I think I heard something about the second (15th) being half.

    • Bethany

      $1531.31 is the monthly amount. The amount received on the 15th and 1st will be half of that minus other deductions such as taxes and insurance.
