    BAH & Geo Bachelors

    Advertisements
    Me and DF are going to get married soon, but I won't move up there with him to NC. I am going to stay in SC for a while. He will end up having to move into the geo bachelors baracks. Does he still get BAH?

    Make sure that he checks with the base that they have goe bach barracks and that there is room. We got screwed when DH did and wound up having to fork $200 over BAH for a hotel for him. Each base does geo bach different. I know Norfolk, had they not screwed us over. We would have gotten BAH for his base but he would have had to pay a small amount for his room.

    Oh I hope that he doesnt get screwed. Hes at MCAS New River, and they have geo bachelor baracks. I will have him check with his command to make sure there is room. He lives in the regular baracks now.

    he may have to pay for the GEO bach barracks- commands are doing 1 of several different things:
    making all GEO's in barracks forfiet the BAH,
    giving them BAH but making them pay to live in the barracks
    or not allowing Geo's to live in barracks at all.

    it is at each commands discretion- and even tho they allowed it last yr- they may not be allowing it this yr-

    the best thing to do is contact the gaining base to be sure.

    yes and they are doing it- the BAH is for the MEMBER WITH dependants-

    not for the dependants alone.

    the branches are trying to cut down on the Geo baching- and they do not have enough barracks to let them live there for free- soooo they are making them pay or making them forfiet the BAH-

    the decision to GEO is a personal choice.
