    Housing allowance

    Advertisements
    Ok, this is a stupid question. When the soldier receives housing pay, BAH I think, how does it get paid out. I thought it was the full amount on the 15th of the month, but DF told me its half each payday. He just moved off base with me, so we arent sure how it works.

    He is right, it's half on the 1st and half on the 15th.

    BAh is actually paid on the 15th and the 1st-
    why is this important- because like pay BAH is paid retoractively- so for instance-

    April BAH is paid 1/2 on the 15th and the balance paid may 1st. always 1/2 a month behind.

    Well the key thing is is that he is allowed to be living off base. If he is ghosting his room than he won't get it.
