While military pay is relatively easy, there can be some tricky bits. Military pay days are on the 15th of the month and the first of the following month, except when the 1st or 15th fall on a weekend or federal holiday. Then, the payday shifts to the business day prior to the weekend and/or holiday.
It’s important to note that many banks and credit unions offer early crediting of military pay as a benefit to their customers (and to entice folks to bank with them!) If your financial institution offers early crediting, this pay calendar will still be helpful but you’ll see your deposit a day or two before the payday listed here.
I have created three types of calendars: a list, a black and white calendar, and a color calendar. You’ll have to scroll down to find the version that you want. Each calendar is available as a PDF, a Word document, or a Google Document. The Google Docs are locked, but you can easily make a copy for your own use by clicking on “File” and selecting “Make a copy.” You can also click on the image to make it larger, then save the image to your own computer.
2019 Military Pay Date Printables
This year, I’m offering three ways to print these: click on the PDF or Microsoft Word link after the image, or click on the image to make it larger, then right click to save it to your own computer.
As always, there are a couple of long pay periods in 2019, not thankfully the calendar has balanced out pretty nicely and there aren’t many. It’s always easier when you’re prepared! If your bank or credit union deposits pay on the actual payday, then these will be your long pay periods:
September end-of-month pay period, from 13 September to 1 October – 18 days
December end-of-month pay period, from 13 December to 31 December – 18 days

Every year, I make at least one mistake on these calendars. I hate it. Please, please let me know ASAP if you see an error. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the link to the right to send me a message.
