    BAH?

    Advertisements
    Does anyone know how long it takes for BAH to start coming in after you get married? I know they usually back pay you if it takes a while but I'm just wondering how long we'll have to wait. I just found out im loosing my main job so we're trying to plan as best as we can

    It took us about 2 weeks. But it depends on when in the month you got married and how quickly you get the paperwork in.


    "Missing someone isn't about how long it has been since you've seen them or the amount of time since you've talked.
    It's about that very moment when you find yourself doing something and wishing they were right there by your side."

    anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months depending on time of month you turned everything in and how long it takes to process.

    Ours took less than 2 weeks. Some people have gone almost 6 months waiting for their BAH to kick in or to even be correct. He will have to stay on top of them if he doesn't get it within at least 2 paychecks.

    It all depends on when the paperwork is entered in the system... you could drop it off the next day and it just sit on someones desk getting burried.

    Anything reguarding DFAS works on the scale of.... 22-7 will show on the 15th pay the 8-21 will show on the 1st pay.

    So if it is enterd in on ...
    the 8th of November than It will not show untill the 1st of December.
    the 23 of November than it will show on the 15th of December.

    This is if everything is put in correctly and on the time.
