2015 Active Duty Military Pay Days


Are you looking for the 2015 Retired Military Paydays?

For my plan-ahead friends out there, here are the 2015 active duty military pay days.  Please remember that the day that your pay will be in your bank account depends on your bank or credit union, and sometimes even the type of account that you use for your direct deposit.  Also, please keep in mind that there is no particular time of day that deposits will happen.  Deposit time can, and does, vary from month to month.

The longest pay period in 2015, if your bank or credit union pays on the actual payday, is the second half of November. This includes Thanksgiving and the associated shopping weekend. If you plan to live it up on Black Friday next year, you need to start planning early. January is not too early.

Always remember that your bank or credit union may release pay funds earlier than the dates listed, but never later.

If payday has come and gone, and your pay is still not in your account, read What If I Don’t Get Paid.

Please read this over and let me know when you find a mistake. I know you will; there is a mistake every year no matter how carefully I proof-read the list.

Knowing when you’ll get paid is the very first step in financial planning. Now you know, so you can move on to more important things.
