2013 Military Payday Schedule

By

Military paydays occur twice a month and are referred to as mid-month pay and end-of-month (EOM) pay. However, don't be fooled by the "end-of-month" reference because as you will notice, the EOM pay is often received on the first day of the following month.

Furthermore, unlike various civilian jobs where employees receive a paycheck on specific days of the month, military pay dates fluctuate due to weekends and holidays. For example, December's mid-month pay occurs on December 13 because December 15 is a Sunday and so forth.
