Still confused?  It is really pretty simple.  The military paydays are on the 15th and 1st of each month.  If the 15th or 1st fall on a weekend or federal holiday, then the payday is the previous business day.  For example, if May 15th falls on a Sunday, then payday is on Friday, the 13th, which is the last business day before the 15th.

Many banks and credit unions, including USAA, release pay funds to their customers one business day earlier than the official payday.  They do this as a courtesy to their customers.  Other banks do not have an official policy of releasing funds early but often do it anyway.  Also, many banks are unable to physically process all their payments at exactly the same moment.  This means your neighbor or friend might get paid before or after you, even if you use the same bank.

If you more questions, please ask...that's why I'm here!
