While everyone in the military knows that paydays are on the 1st and 15th of every month, the actual payday doesn't always land on those dates because of weekends and holidays.
If you're like most of us, the money usually runs out before payday rolls around. Knowing exactly when the next paycheck will hit the bank is important when you have bills to pay, food to buy, and life's necessities to pay for.
What many people are not aware of is the fact that if they have a bank account with USAA, their pay will be in the bank before payday.
In fact, sometimes your pay will be in the bank on Friday when the regular military pay day is Monday.
