Coast Guard members could get paid as early as Tuesday
Coast Guard members can expect to see their missing paychecks as early as Tuesday, according to Adm. Charles W. Ray, vice commandant of the service.
The Coast Guard Pay and Personnel Center worked through the weekend and secured after-hours support from the U.S. Treasury office to process pay missed during the partial federal government shutdown as quickly as possible, Ray wrote in the letter posted Sunday to the Coast Guard’s All Hands website.
These paychecks, which should arrive in bank accounts no later than Wednesday, will include mid-month pay. Regular end-of-the-month checks should be delivered Thursday. Retirees should expect scheduled pay Thursday as well.
“The commandant and I are acutely aware of the challenges you and your families experienced over the past five weeks and are anxious to reconstitute our total mission ready workforce so we can heal and move forward,” Ray said. “We recognize that missing paychecks and the overall uncertainty during the lapse in appropriations resulted in hardship and concern for our military and civilian workforce. It is our top priority to ensure that all pay is available as soon as possible.”
