I need to determine if GETDATE()  is exactly on a two week interval from a specific date

Example...
A person has a payment to make
First Payment was on July 20th 2010
Interval is Bi-Weekly (Every 2 weeks)

Is today THAT "every 14 days" date? Yes/No

<Air code.  I do my own stunts too>

SELECT CASE 
  WHEN DATEADD(d, 14, FirstPaymentDate) = CAST(GETDATE() as date) THEN 'Yes'
  ELSE 'No' END as MakeUpAColumnNameHere

... or if we're talking 'If this is on the 14th date somewhere out in the future' then use Modulo...

SELECT CASE 
  WHEN DATEDIFF(d, FirstPaymentDate, CAST(GETDATE() as date)) % 14 = 0 THEN 'Yes'
  ELSE 'No' END as MakeUpAColumnNameHere
