Military Pay Dates 2020

Knowing when you get paid is important. You already know that  you will get paid on the 1st and 15th of every month.  However, the actual payday doesn’t always land on those days because of weekends and holidays.

In addition to that, if you bank with USAA you do get paid early. You will receive your pay a business day before regular payday. This means that sometimes you will receive your pay on a Friday when regular military payday is Monday.
