    BAH

    Advertisements
    Currently I am living in Idaho while my husband is in AIT in TX, however I am moving down to TX to be closer to him in a few weeks. I was curious if our BAH changes when I move to TX because the cost of living is higher there or if it stays the same? Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    I believe that while he's in AIT you will get BAH according to your location. After AIT, when he has permanent orders, if it is possible for you to accompany him, you will get BAH according to his permanent duty station, regardless of where you choose to live.

    That is how my husband's recruiter said it works, but he also admitted that it is not a question he gets often, and his information could be out of date.

    Your best bet for the most accurate information would probably be to get in touch with his finance person and ask them.

    How would one figure out who his finance person is? haha I am very new to this?

    He was more curious than me, I just haven't been able to talk to him in a few so I have no way of knowing if he has found someone to ask etc etc.

    Thanks for all the help!

    When my husband was in tech school (California) and I was in Colorado, we received BAH for MY location. When I moved to be with him (still in tech school) our BAH changed to California- MUCH higher cost of living. However, when I moved with him to another part of his training (Texas) on our dime, our BAH remained at the California rate, because there were no orders for me to move with him and his training in TX, though it was 4 months long, was considered a TDY, not a new station.

    As you can see, it is VERY circumstantial. If your situation mirrors ours, I would guess that your BAH will change to your new location when you move.
