    Question about first paycheck?

    Advertisements
    How long after my DH starts basic will he get his first paycheck?

    Like, let's say hypothetically he were to start next Monday.

    Would it take until July 1st to get his first paycheck or would he receive it in June?

    Someone had told me we wouldn't be paid until "July" and I'm just concerned because I'm trying to budget for once he finally does leave, and I don't know how this will work if we aren't getting paid for a full month.

    I would give it 30 days, it should (I believe) come in sooner then that, but I believe it can take up to 30 days. I could be wrong though...

    allow 4 weeks for the pay to start, it takes a while to get everything set up and in the system

    I agree with Sam. Expect at least 30 days but be pleasantly surprised if the first pay comes sooner.

    He could get payed June 15th, but I would budget for it to arrive July 1st.

    It really depends on how long it take finance to get him entered into the system.

    Thank you ladies! I figured that, but it's going to be a pain...boo no money

    Ah well, worst fears confirmed I guess

    I'll just budget for one month without pay, and keep my fingers crossed that the finance gods will it to be sooner!

    They say the 1st and the 15th are pay days... DB didn't get his on the 1st because all the processing of information, we just got it on the 15th. Which is *roughly* 3 weeks.

    My DH left the 5th and got his first pay the 15th, but he is in the Air Guard and has been for a year. So he was already setup in the pay system.
