Military Early Pay

Early Pay is a free, automatic direct deposit service we offer to military service members. Whether active or retired, all service members can have access to their Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) direct deposits one business day before the set pay date.

Direct deposits from companies or places other than DFAS do not qualify.

How to Enroll

If you have a checking or savings account with direct deposit, you're already set! There are no forms to fill out or fees to pay.

If you don't have a checking or savings account yet or need to set up direct deposit, here's how to take care of both:

  • To open an account, look at your options for checking or savings and apply online. Applying typically takes 10 minutes or less.
  • To set up direct deposit, contact your servicing payroll office or log into your MyPay account and enter your checking or savings account details and routing number (101108319).
