Whelp, we’ve avoided a government shutdown. For now.
The next regular military payday is Friday, 15 December 2023. If you receive an active duty military paycheck, then that’s the day you’ll get paid – unless you use a bank or credit union that offers early direct deposit of military pay as a benefit to their members.
USAA Military Pay Date
USAA credits military pay deposits TWO business days early.
That means that USAA members should see their pay deposited on Wednesday, 13 December 2023.
Navy Federal Military Pay Dates
Because Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU) checking accounts have different benefits, NFCU has two pay deposit dates depending on what type of account you use for your pay deposit. Throw in their overnight pay posting structure, and Tuesdays are fun.
NFCU Active Duty Checking offers to credit military pay of one business day prior to the actual payday.
That means that Navy Federal members using Active Duty Checking accounts will see their pay pending on Wednesday, 13 December 2023, to be processed the deposit overnight with the pay available for use on Thursday, 14 December 2023.
However, NFCU members with accounts that are not Active Duty Checking accounts will see their pay pending on Thursday, 14 December 2023, to be posted overnight and available for use on Friday, 15 December 2023.
Service Credit Union Military Pay Date
Service Credit Union’s early crediting offer is “up to two business days” early. Your pay should be deposited on Wednesday, 13 December 2023, per the Service Credit Union’s projections.
