DFAS: Troops to Receive Mid-Month Pay Despite Shutdown

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service says all military service members will receive their salaries and allowances for the current pay period by Oct. 15, Military Times reported Tuesday.

Andrew Tilghman writes DFAS started processing the mid-month payroll as the Pentagon works to interpret a federal law that guarantees military pay during the shutdown.

A DFAS spokesperson told Military Times the agency would list the forms of compensation that are covered in next week’s paychecks.

Tilghman reports the Pentagon may withhold certain benefits that are not directly issued to military personnel.
