    So does that mean it went up or stayed the same?

    If you area rate went up, you'll see it on the next paycheck (the 15th).

    Do you know if your area went up? There was a thread about it on here... Lemme see if I can find it..

    You're welcome.

    Some area's stayed the same, went down or went up. If the BAH went down in the area you are currently living in, you are grandfathered into the higher rate. So it will stay the same basically. Only the new comers will get the lower BAH rate. Here is the link to figure out your 2012 BAH rate http://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/bahCalc.cfm

    It stayed the same as 2011.

    Thanks for all the clarification. That's a bummer.

    That will depend entirely on his rank and location. For some it went up and for some it went down. But the pay check received on January 1st of 2012 was actually the second payment for December of 2011.

    I may have misunderstood what you are asking. Here is the link for the calculator to determine your BAH: BAH Calculator.
