This is a long pay period.  Start planning NOW!

Tuesday, 31 December 2013

The good news is that there are two longish pay periods, and they are only 18 days each.  The bad news is that one long pay period is the second half of December.  Many people are already stretching to make ends meet during the holidays, and a long period can make it more difficult if you are not prepared.  Start planning now to make sure your holiday is full of cheer and not stress.

These are the official military paydays, and you should be paid no later than these days.  Many banks and credit unions offer early direct deposit of military pay as a courtesy to their customers.  Not sure how your bank handles military pay deposits?  Give them a call, search the archives here at The Paycheck Chronicles, or ask in the comments.

As always, pay can come at any time during the day.  For more information, see  What Time Will I Get Paid?
