    BAH question.

    Advertisements
    If DH and i got married on the 17th or Sept, but we wont receive our official certificate till 3 weeks from that date, will the BAH be back dated to the day we got married? if so would we only get 1/2 the months BAH?

    also, how long does it take for the BAH to show up on the paycheck after he updates his page 2? thanks for any info!

    It will be backdated to the date you got married. If you got married on September 17, you'd receive 14 days of BAH for the month of September. Once you update his page 2, BAH should kick in within 1-2 paychecks.

    Yes back dated to the date of your wedding.

    I know some people who have had their bah the next pay after getting their spouse in the system (dh and I got married on the 18, turned paperwork in and had bah the 1st of the next month. But than there are some people who have had to wait through a whole pay period (ie using my date, getting it on the 15th pay of the next month) and than some people it takes months because paperwork is lost or screwed.

    what others said is correct, but i read the title of this thread as "BAHHHHH Question!" like BAH! I have a question, not a question about housing allowance.

    When DH and I got married 3 years ago (September 18th!), our BAH was backdated to that day. I don't remember if it kicked in October 1st or November 1st though.
