A lot of it has to do with the timing. Most finance issues have to be turned in by the 15th or the 20th depending on your local finance policies. If something is turned in by then, expect it to show on the first, if not it will likely be the 15th.

To help get through a short tough period where you are waiting for his pay to start, contact the current commander or rear detachment commander for help. Most unist have a family readiness group if he is deployed that would be willing to lend some support with groceries, etc. until the checks start coming in. They may even have a lending closet with food if there is a chaplain within the unit.
