The next regular military payday is Friday, 1 March 2024. 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.
Read on to find out when you’re going to get paid.
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, 28 February 2024.
Some folks might remember that USAA used to credit military pay deposits one business day early. They moved to two business days early in 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. They also do this thing where you pay sometimes shows as pending before you actually get it. Sometimes for a day, sometimes for a few days, sometimes not at all.
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, 28 February 2024, to be processed the deposit overnight with the pay available for use on Thursday, 29 February 2024.
However, NFCU members with accounts that are not Active Duty Checking accounts will see their pay pending on Thursday, 29 February 2024, to be posted overnight and available for use on Friday, 1 March 2024.
If you’re a Navy Federal member and you’re not currently using an Active Duty Checking account, you might want to switch. Active Duty Checking is available to active duty, National Guard, reserves, and retired members. This account has no fees and no minimum balance requirement. It reimburses up to $20 in ATM fees each month, and credits military pay deposits one business day early. You can also get free checks – if you still use checks for anything.
