    • M1917A1 says:

      Yeah, with "Instant Transfers", "Hot Check" day's are a thing of the past. That's how we use to survive when we were home ported in Pearl.

  5. Rusty says:

  7. tammy says:

  8. Signalman says:

    Was this originally posted in November? I was able to print out the last (2013)years one, but don't want to copy/paste this one, with the ad in the middle of it…

  9. Kristin Williams says:

    If child support is court ordered and coming out of the service members pay monthly when they retire will it continue to come monthly.

    • M1917A1 says:

      Yes, all allotments will continue unless cancelled by the service member. You will be asked about your allotments at your separation and transfer to the Fleet Reserves. Good luck and smooth sailings in your retirement. James P. Vetzel, GMGC, SW, USN, Retired ('64-'86)

    • tracie says:

      If they retire, they have no more active service, but they will retirement pension, you may want to look into that, but I believe that child support comes out of their pension but they will not give you their whole pension, because he did fight for his country.

  10. Gilly says:

    How much does 1.5% Retired pay equal too?

  11. Doris says:

    What happened to the payday for March 2014?

  12. R Zien says:

    Thanks. It helps plan the deposit dates..

  13. Larry says:

    Usually how long before the pay date does the pvy statement/voucher show up in DFAS?_

    • Kate says:

      Larry, I am not sure for retiree account statements. Active duty leave and earnings statements are usually up about a week before the pay day. Readers, do you know?

  14. Larry Murphy says:

    Nornally, how long before the pay date does the pay statement/voucher show up in DFAS?

  15. Vance says:

    Kate I sent you an e-mail about retired pay about a week ago but never got an answer. Vance

  16. Kate says:

    Vance, I get tons of emails, and I reply to them as quickly as possible. I am finding your email hard to understand. I will send it back to you and perhaps you can make it easier for me to read. Thank you.

  17. Billy Addie says:

    I am a new Army retiree as of Today!! When should I expect my retirement pay?

    • Kate says:

      Congratulations, Billy. That is great! You will probably see your first retirement pay on 1 June 2014. Thank you for your service.

  18. Glenn S says:

    If I change my direct deposit to another financial institution, how long before it goes in affect at the new location?

  19. Chuck L says:

    If you are eligible to receive reserve retired pay at 60, will the first check start on the 1st day of your birth month or the 1st of the month following your birthday?

    • Kate says:

      Chuck, I'm not super-well versed on retired reserve pay. I'm pretty sure it will be the month AFTER you turn 60, and after you submit your request to start receiving retired pay. I think it says in the instructions that go with the request to start receiving retired pay.


      • Rock says:

        You are on the money Kate. I retired from the reserve program 9 March (age 60) and received my first direct deposit pension from Uncle on 1 April Chuck.

  20. Harold wandle says:

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

  21. chris says:

    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?

  22. Tracie says:

    If we have retired, and we want to come out of retirement, to continue to serve, is that possible, or what jobs can we get to add more years to our time?

  23. Trace says:

    what I also what to know when we are granted our retire pension, how soon will we receive it.?

  24. Kevin says:

    Great info, thanks. Stay blessed.
