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

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

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