Hi Veterans, Brian Reese here, Veteran Benefits expert and founder of VA Claims Insider, and in this post, I’m explaining the 2022 VA disability pay dates in detail.

I also created a free VA pay dates 2022 schedule by Month, Payment Date, and Day of the Week, so you know when to expect your monthly VA disability compensation payment to hit your bank account.

One of the questions I get asked all the time is this:

“Brian, I got my new VA disability rating thanks to you and VA Claims Insider Elite, but I want to know the actual VA pay dates for 2022. Do you know when I will start getting paid?”

– Veteran Asks

Awe yes, a great question, and an important one for disabled veterans and their families.

So, let’s dive right into the VA pay schedule for 2022.

What day of the month does the VA pay disability?

For all VA disability compensation benefits, the actual benefit for a month is paid the first business day of the following month.

However, when the first day of the month falls on a non-business day or a holiday, VA benefits will be paid on the last business day prior to the first of the month.

The January 2022 VA disability compensation payment will be paid on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, which is the first business day of the following month (February), which happens to fall on a Tuesday.

Another example: Your April 2022 VA disability check will be paid on Friday, April 29, 2022, since March 1, 2022 is a Sunday (non-business day).

So, if you’re a disabled veteran, surviving spouse, or family member, I built this 2022 VA pay dates calendar to help you know “when” your monthly tax-free VA compensation payment will be direct deposited into your checking or savings account.

USAA and Navy Federal VA Disability Direct Deposit Dates

Please note that you may get your direct deposit payment sooner depending upon your bank.

USAA and Navy Federal pay dates for 2022 VA disability pay will arrive 1-3 days prior if you’ve set-up direct deposit from the VA.

I use direct deposit for my VA disability compensation payment, which goes directly to my Navy Federal checking account each month, and it usually arrives 1-3 days prior.

For example, the April 2021 VA disability compensation pay date was April 30, 2021, but arrived in my Navy Federal account one day early.
