2014 Retired Military Paydays

Looking for the 2014 active duty military paydays?

Plan ahead with the 2015 Retired Military Paydays.

For my retired readers, here’s a comprehensive (and hopefully accurate) list of the paydays for military retired pay.  Military retired pay is deposited on the 1st of each month, or the previous business day if the first falls on a weekend or holiday.  Therefore, the dates for military retired pay for 2014 are:

Tuesday, 31 December 2013

Friday, 31 January 2014

Friday, 28 February 2014

Tuesday, 1 April 2014

Friday, 29 August 2014

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

Friday, 31 October 2014

Hope that helps you plan!

    I am worried my retired military pay was not posted on my on line chase banking account for the month of may

  20. If you retire on the 9th of the month will you or should you receive your first pay the following month on the 1st? Or when would you likely see your first payment?

  21. Great info, thanks. Stay blessed.

    Hi, on Aug 18, 2014 was my 60th birthday. According to your above paydays list I was supposed to get my direct deposit of my retirement on Aug 29th. However I checked my account with Pentagon Credit Union and as of today I have no deposit. All my paper work was done months ago and I even received the orders to get my new ID card. What should I do?

  23. My son was medically retired July 1st and received his first check in Aug but has not received his check for September, who does he need to contact to inquire about this issue?

  24. I retired from the USAF, effective 1 Sep (last day was 31 Aug). Should I expect to see my first retirement pay on 1 Oct, or is there normally a lag?


  25. Things get tight when holidays are on the horizon. I am amazed at how fast I was able to find the October 31st payment. Thanks so much.


  27. The retired military pay day is on the last 3 banking days of every month, so your chart is out of whack.

  28. Nov was direct deposited on the 25th. Can I reasonably expect an early deposit (prior to Christmas) for December?

  29. Charles tyler | December 4, 2014 at 8:53 pm |

    tyler, I am turning 60 on December 18th 2014 when should I get my first check depoiset to my saving account retired in September 8th 2003, 24 years.of service.

  30. I retire from the guard effective July 4th of this year 2015. When should I expect my first check?

  31. How can add the 2015 Retired Military Paydays to my iPad mini?

  32. I am a reservist who retired in 2006. I will be turning 60 Sept 4. Will my first retired check be on Sept 1 or Oct 1?
