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 payment dates for 2023. 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 schedule for VA disability pay dates 2023.

2023 VA Disability Pay Dates Explained: When Does the VA Pay Disability Compensation?

2023 VA Disability Pay Dates

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.

For example, the January 2023 VA disability compensation payment will be paid on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, which is the first business day of the following month (February), which happens to fall on a Wednesday.

So, if you’re a disabled veteran, surviving spouse, or family member, I built this free 2023 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.

VA Pay Schedule 2023: What are the 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 2023 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 2022 VA disability compensation pay date was April 29, 2022, but it arrived in my Navy Federal checking account one day early (April 28, 2022).
