The following table reflects the DFAS schedule of military (active and reserve components) pay dates. This information may help to avoid any confusion as to when you should expect to see the payment deposited to your account.
Note: Each servicemember has the option of receiving his or her pay one or two times a month. If they select to receive their pay twice a month they will receive semi-monthly pay on the 15th of each month - if the 1st or 15th falls on Saturday or Sunday, payday is the Friday before.
