12 January 2018 Military Pay

The next regular payday is a smidge early, and it means a lloonngg pay period for the second half of this month. Because 15 January is a federal holiday, the military payday is on Friday, 12 January 2018. That means the next payday isn't until Thursday, 1 February 2018 - almost three weeks between paychecks!

When will your 12 January 2018 military pay be available to use? As always, that depends on the policies and practices of your financial institution. Some banks and credit unions offer early direct deposit as a benefit to their customers. If your bank or credit union doesn't offer early direct deposit, then you will probably see your deposit available in your bank account at some point on the actual payday.
