    Question BAH and Terminal Leave?

    Advertisements
    DH was telling me that we'll still receive BAH and his regular pay during his terminal leave, but there was one thing he was unsure of and he wondering if I could ask the wealth of knowledge on MSOS

    Would we be receiving the BAH rate at his current duty station or would we be getting the BAH rate wherever we decide to stay during the 2 1/2 month of his terminal leave?

    TIA

    Good question. I have no idea since when I got out I never took terminal leave, I sold back my leave days. Anyway dh is retiring next year and plans to take terminal leave and depending on where he gets a job we could move during that. Something I would like to know, too!
    I would assume the duty station though.

    not 100% sure but i believe its for the duty station, because he wouldn't have yet signed out (out processed).

    100% sure it is for the duty station and BAH will be paid as normal until the last day of terminal leave!!

    ( I actually love answering this question because for those that take terminal leave the military will pay you to do nothin' ,nada, zip zilch -- or even better they will pay you even if you get a job while on terminal leave and this can be huge huge huge!!)

    for us DH is stationed in DC, the BAH is 2400 dollars and change- he will get that BAH in addition to his base pay for 60 days.( actually because he is retiring it will be almost 5 months)
    here the BAH is 1400-

    they do completely outprocess because he will not have to return to check out- but seperating is completely different than PCSing.

    Ooo thank you! BAH where we're going is only around $1,000, but BAH where we're currently stationed is nearly $2,000 so it was definitely something we were curious about
