Looking for information on the upcoming paycheck? Find details at When Is The Next Military Payday?
Hot off the press! USAA will now be crediting military pay deposits up to two days early. Fascinating.
USAA military pay dates are the most frequent search here at KateHorrell.com. It’s not surprising – USAA is the most popular bank for military service members. New as of 9 December 2022, USAA credits anticipated military pay up to two business days prior to the actual payday. There is a warning that the pay may not be deposited early if the information is not received from your pay processing center. So be a little careful!

I’ve eliminated the Google Docs version from previous years because people were confused by the “make a copy” directions and that was causing frustration. If you want it in Google Doc, let me know I’ll do it just for you! (Email me at kate at katehorrell.com)
Because of the way weekends and holidays work, every year has a couple of very long pay periods in it. They’re a lot easier to manage if you are prepared for them. If you get paid two business days early with USAA, here are your long pay periods for 2023:
January end-of-month pay period, 19 days: 11 January to 30 January 2023
May end-of-month pay period, 19 days: 11 May to 30 May 2023
August end-of-month pay period, 19 days: 11 August to 30 August 2023
October end-of-month pay period, 19 days, 11 October to 30 October 2023

Frequently Asked Questions
I get a lot of questions about military pay and early direct deposit. Here are some of the most common questions I receive:
What Time Does USAA Deposit Military Pay?
There’s no specific time that pay is available for use. In general, it is available somewhere between 4 am and 6 am US Central time.
Will USAA Credit Deposits Early Over Holiday Weekends?
USAA’s policy is to credit pay deposits one business day prior to the date that they’re expecting to receive that deposit. Of course, this means that they need to know that the deposit is coming. Usually, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) sends that information several days before the payday. If the information comes late, it may not be possible to make payments early.
However, even if they receive the information more than one day in advance, USAA will credit the deposit one business day prior to the actual payday.
When Could Military Pay Be Delayed?
In general, the military receives their paycheck on a regular, twice-a-month schedule. However, military pay could be affected if there are any budget issues in the government, such as a debt ceiling, budget issue, or government shutdown, that pay could be delayed.
