    BAH?

    Advertisements
    We are PCSing and going into base housing. Is there a way to find out if we are getting paid for BAH the month before or after the current pay period?
    Trying to set a budget and I need to know if I can count on BAH after the move...if that makes any sense



    Thanks in advance!!

    I believe its the month prior.... example BAH for oct 1-15 would come on on the 15th of oct, oct 15-30 would be on nov 1st.

    Your husbands BAH rates change when he checks into his new station. His MyPay should reflect / show when his BAH will change, or at least I know it shows when pay raises occur so BAH should be shown, too.

    We just PCS'd in June. We arrived at our new base and signed the contract at housing 28th June. We got BAH on July 1st for the old Base (which was lower). We had to pay for the last few days of June out of pocket before getting the keys. Then we had to pay on July 1st for the month of July (which was a little out of pocket then too). When DH inprocessed, we were reimbursed for the July out of pocket and our old housing company sent us a check reimbursing for the days we had paid for, but had already outprossesed from housing KWIM. So in the end we paid nothing out of pocket, but it took about a month to get everything sorted out.

    BAH like pay is paid retroactively- so OCT BAH is paid on OCT 15 with the balance paid NOV 1st.

    BAH will be prorated to the date you check into housing- so if you get a house on NOV 7 you will get BAH for 1-7 nov paid nov 15th.
