    You mean for bah? It's just a flat dependent rate that doesn't change depending on how many kids you have...

    You don't get paid per # of dependants. BAH/COLA/etc.. are all paid with or with out dependants rate.

    Do you mean as in BAH? they pay the AD extra for having a dependent, the. number of them doesn't matter.
    Other than that, they do not pay dependents.
    If you are talking about death benefits, only one.
    If you want my opinion on your relationship or life issues, just ask Villanelle!

    none- unless you are counting OCOLA and then I think it stops at 4 or 6.

    That isn't 100% true. OCONUS COLA is based on the number of family members but they only pay up to 5.
