Navy Federal Pay Dates 2024

One benefit of being a Navy Federal Credit Union member is having funds made available early if you have Active Duty Checking. Find the standard military pay dates and Navy Federal pay dates below.

Military Pay Dates

The military pays on the 1st and 15th of every month. Everyone knows that! But what if the actual military pay date lands on the weekend or a holiday?

Navy Federal Credit Union deposits funds early for some members. This will depend on the type of checking account that you have. An Active Duty Checking account will receive funds earlier than other checking accounts.

It is important to note, as confirmed by Navy Fed, that if a military payday falls on a Monday, Regular Military Funds will go in the Saturday before, and Active Duty Checking will go on Friday. Funds are typically available the day before the military pay date.

Editor’s Note: These dates are estimates. The following tables are for informational purposes only.

The Navy Federal official site reminds if you have NFCU Free Active Duty Checking, you “automatically” receive Direct Deposit funds one business day early. In spite of the name, Active Duty Checking is an option offered to active duty military, Reserve members, and military retirees. Any reference below to Freee Active Duty Checking refers to this program. The option (at press time) offers rebates on ATM fees,  no service fees, and no minimum monthly balance.

NavyFed Retiree Payment Dates 2024

If you draw military retirement pay, your pay delivery “differs a little” according to Navy Federal. The pay dates are not identical to Active Duty military pay dates, and if you are newly retired, you’ll need to adjust your calendars to reflect Direct Deposit dates (below) for military retirement pay instead of active duty pay. NFCU says its retired military members who have Free Active Duty Checking accounts automatically get their retirement pay one business day early.
