2011 Military Retiree Pay Dates

Looking for the 2012 dates?  See 2012 Military Retirement Pay Dates.

Now that I've posted the 2011 Active Duty Military Pay Dates, I've been getting questions about the retiree pay dates. I only recently learned that retirees only get paid one time a month, so I certainly have a lot of learning to do!

Based upon the chart published at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), the 2011 pay dates for military retirees are:

  • Monday, January 3, 2011
  • Tuesday, February 1, 2011
  • Tuesday, March 1, 2011
  • Friday, April 1, 2011
  • Monday, May 2, 2011
  • Wednesday, June 1, 2011
  • Friday, July 1, 2011
  • Monday, August 1, 2011
  • Thursday, September 1, 2011
  • Monday, October 3, 2011 Friday, September 30, 2011  See Adjustments to 2011 Retiree Pay Calendar for more information on this change. 
  • Tuesday, November 1, 2011
  • Thursday, December 1, 2011
Military retirees are paid on the 1st of the month, unless that day falls on a weekend or a holiday.  In that case, the pay will be distributed on the next business day following the weekend or holiday. Show Full Article
