How Can You Find the Projected VA Payment Dates?

The projected VA payment dates are posted on the website of the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, which is the payment service provider of the U.S. Department of Defense. Visitors to the site can see retiree payment dates and annuitant payment dates for the current year.

Retiree payment dates generally come at the end of the entitlement month, while annuitant payment dates are typically a few days later at the beginning of the next entitlement month. As of 2015, any questions, concerns or difficulties encountered by recipients of VA benefits should be directed to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at 800-827-1000.
