    LES Allotment question

    Advertisements
    Can someone tell me what Discretionary ALT means? I get that its an allotment but am I correct that its money being taken away? I see one that is over 1k and then there is tricare dental.

    So what is this discretionary allotment going towards since it's not coming into our bank account?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question... I'm new to looking at the LES and trying to create a budget from it is becoming frustrating since our pay is never right!

    He's AF... I may have just had a moment. Is it supposed to be the same as our BAH? Those two numbers match up...
