    BAH experts

    Advertisements
    Our LES is up and I'm wondering why our BAH isn't the full amount. It a couple hundred dollars less than full. It's the LES for May 1-31. Only thing I can think of is that it includes BAH for the dates of April 15-May 15 because we checked in here on the April 18th. Is this why?

    It should include 18 April through 30 April AND 1 May through 31 May.

    Yeah. I have no clue. Our BAH was more before so maybe they deducted stuff out? But usually they would just do a debt thingie. IDK. I'm sure they'll fix it eventually, just trying to figure out why.

    Did they pay a whole month on his April LES for the old location?

    If they deducted, there would be a BAH repay line on his LES. Then a partial for the new rate for the remaining time.

    And yes, they will fix it.

    Yes, we got full for April and they let us know it would be deducted (and it was, the line is there as a debt). I'll worry about it if the next LES is wrong I guess, lol. We did get backpaid COLA though which is exciting.

    the BAH is paid retroactively- so if you checked on april 18th- the BAH on the first of may would have been from the 18th of Apr to the 30 - then the BAH on May 15th would have been from the 1st to the 15th. so your BAH on the LES is showing the prorated amount for april- for june it will show the full amount.

    Hm... it usually has the full amount in the first box for us, it's just divided over two paychecks. Just like the full base pay amount is listed. We had to pay back some BAH we got though (there's a debt payback listed in his pay). I'm pretty sure it's right. Will look next month and see what shows up, lol.

    Hmm ours does not.. it just says the 2 week pay, so half of the monthly.. doesn't list anywhere the full amount

    This thing is hard enough to understand as it is
