    So we got our first paycheck today...

    Advertisements
    and I have no idea if it is what it's supposed to be. I cannot access MyPay for some reason, the military ID and PIN he sent me don't want to enter in for me on the website .

    I want to try and figure a general idea out of what the check should have been...so:

    1. Besides taxes, $100 for GI bill and life insurance what else comes out of each paycheck? I realize the first one has money taken out for the advanced pay.

    2. Since we didnt get paid on 9/1, will the next check, 10/1 just be a bit larger than normal?

    3. If I call MyPay, will they help me figure out the login or at least send me a paper copy of it...seeing as I am not the actual service memeber?

    I am just worried to use this money that was deposited as I am afraid if they over payed, they will come back for it.

    DH is an E3 and he left 8/23. Our deposit today was $1870...I just cant tell if this seems right....anyone have any insight?

    it looks like you got paid from 8/23 to 9/1 and 9/1 to 9/15- so the pay would be prorated ffrom the 23rd to the 31st along with the BAH- and then you would have gotten the full 1/2 pay for pay and BAH for 9/1 to 9/15 so actually the check will probably be smaller on oct 1st.

    the base pay is 1705 a month. and your BAH is 845 a month

    Ahh, I forgot about the part in August.

    So this next 10/1 paycheck should be more of our "normal" paycheck?
