Guard Pay Delay Expected Until Budget Passes

National Guard Pay submitted to to the Defense Finance and Accounting Service after January 9th will not likely be disbursed until a budget is passed.

CAMP ROBINSON, AR -- The Arkansas National Guard has been notified that all reserve component military pay, excluding Active, Guard and Reserve personnel, will be delayed until a budget or a continuing resolution is passed by Congress.

The current continuing resolution is set to expire on Wednesday.

Pay not submitted before January 9 will be recorded in the pay system, but not disbursed until funding is restored.

A message regarding the delay has been posted to the Arkansas National Guard's facebook page:

"Our chief concern remains the care of our Guard members and families; once the authority to disburse is granted, we will do so in a timely manner.

This issue is not isolated to the Arkansas National Guard; this is a nationwide issue.

Those who drilled Saturday and Sunday will not likely be paid until a budget is passed.

We encourage our Guard members to prepare for delays in direct deposit of military pay."


Over the past two weekends, around 85-hundred Arkansas National Guard members have drilled.

Pay for that service is to be submitted after the January 9th date.
