    Allowances while separated from DH

    Advertisements
    DH is in Japan, but I am here in Alabama until we get his orders changed to accompanied. He's been there for about a month. I JUST realized that we are supposed to be receiving BAH based on my location and FSA annnnnd we aren't. What can be done to change this?
    i fear
    no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
    no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
    and itís you are whatever a moon has always meant
    and whatever a sun will always sing is you

    How long have you been married? If you haven't been married that long than BAH might not have kicked in yet... it usually takes a few months. Same for FSA, it usually takes a couple of months. But you do get back paid.

    And he filed with the military that he is now married?

    DH didn't receive BAH until about 3-4 months after we were married but it was back paid. He's been deployed for almost 2 months now & we still haven't gotten FSA but it does all get back paid.

    Not that I know of. The most they'd probably tell you is what I already have.

    Ughh. Thank you for the help.
    I am going to sound completely stupid, but the military pay charts that you can look up online..is that amount per month or per pay period?

    Like the BAH calculator? That's per month. You get half in each paycheck.

    for FSA, he has to be gone 31 days before that will kick in and then it will be in the next pay statement, so if he left last month, you Probably won't see it till April... however he could have opted to receive it in a lump sum, in which case he won't get it till the end.
