    BAH question

    Advertisements
    Dh is deploying soon, and I was planning on going home for the deployment. We plan on keeping our apartment off base, & continuing to pay rent monthly, will we lose our BAH since I won't be here or will we still get it since we still have a lease and we are still paying? Its a stupid question but its bothering me

    T.I.A

    As long as you pay to move back and forth, I imagine you should keep your BAH. Most spouses go home during deployment at some point.

    You'll still get it as long as you don't tell them you're going home. DH says if they catch you you'll have to pay it back?

    No you don't, that is BS. You can even live with your parents and still get BAH. You have an apartment, your paying for it, you still get your BAH even if you put out a big sign you're not going to be there physically for a while.

    You wont lose it. You're entitled to it no matter where you live, and you're entitled to the Hawaii BAH.
