The next regular, active duty military pay day is Monday, 15 June 2015. Monday paydays always create a lot of questions, especially if you’re used to getting paid early. So, when should you expect to see your military pay? The depends on your bank or credit union, and sometimes even what sort of account you use for your direct deposit.
Service Credit Union
Service Credit Union offers early direct deposit active duty military pay two business days prior to the official payday, pending the receipt of the pay information from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service. Assuming no surprises, service members who bank with Service Credit Union will have their military pay deposited into their account on Thursday, 11 June 2015. However, Service Credit Union does guarantee these early deposits, so be sure not to spend the money before you see it in your account (this is good advice for everyone!)
USAA, PMCU, and other “one business day” early banks
Amongst the many early direct deposit offers, “one business day early” is the most common. For this pay period, one business day early will be Friday, 12 June 2015. Banks and credit unions that offer this benefit include USAA and PMCU.
Navy Federal Credit Union
Navy Federal Credit Union makes things a little bit more confusing, because they only offer early direct deposit for one type of checking account.
Keep in mind that there is no specific time that your pay will be deposited, even if there seems to be a typical time that your pay is deposited. See What Time Will I Get Paid? for more information.
Pay errors do happen all the time. If payday has come and gone, and your haven’t been paid, see Why Hasn’t My Pay Been Deposited? to figure out where to start.
