    1st and the 15th of every month. If it happens to fall on a weekend, then the Friday before that date you get paid. HTH

    They get paid in the middle of the month and at the end of the month. You will also receive a LES (Leave and earning statement). This will either be a hard copy, or you will be able to get it online on the dfas.mypay website.
    You should learn how to read this and understand it. Your mates check may contain many different types of pay, some taxed, some non-taxable, some temporary, some permanent. This will help you be able to budget better once you understand why the checks are for the amounts they are. Also, the government is known to make mistakes. One big issue is if they overpay your husband (yes, this happens a lot) for a period of time. When they discover this, they will try to take the entire amount all at once. This happens more then you can imagine.
    Sorry for the long answer for the short question, but I hope it helps.
