Brian Reese here, VA benefit’s expert and founder of VA Claims Insider, and in this post, I’m revealing and explaining the official 2024 VA disability pay dates.
I also created a VA pay dates 2024 calendar 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 payment dates for 2024. Do you know when I will get my new VA disability compensation payment?”– Veteran Asks
It’s a great question, and an important one for disabled veterans and their families.
Okay, let’s dive into the schedule for VA disability pay dates 2024.
2024 VA Disability Pay Dates: When Does the VA Pay Disability Compensation?
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 February 2024 VA disability compensation payment will be paid on February 1, 2024, which is the first business day of the following month (February), which happens to fall on a Thursday.
So, if you’re a disabled veteran, surviving spouse, or family member, I built this free 2024 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 Dates 2024: 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 2024 VA disability pay will arrive 1-3 days prior if you’ve set-up direct deposit with 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 typically arrives 1-3 days prior.
