    National Guard BAH

    Advertisements
    So question, DH and I were discussing this and wanted input on those who know better.

    National Guardsman gets mobilized to deploy... is there a reg. that says they HAVE to show a lease/mortgage to receive BAH or do they automatically receive it for being on active duty orders.

    They should automatically receive it like everyone else once activated. That's how it worked for friends of mine at least during hurricane clean ups etc.

    Thats what I thought as well, DH is adamant that NG/Reserve HAVE to show a lease/mortgage to receive BAH when mobilized/deployed.

    I think it depends on the command. We had to show a lease/mortgage, but I don't know if it was a regulation or just easy for them.

    We didn't have to show a lease. DH is reserve and was just activated. We will receive BAH next check and never had to show anything. Ours goes off our state of residence even though that is less than our rent.

    Guard may be different than reserve though since it's state vs federal command?

    DF didn't have to show a copy of our lease to receive it. It's based on area
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    We automatically revived it for the zip code we were live in. DH didn't show them anything. We just got it. We also get it now when he's away overnight or for annual training. Any time he's on AD orders (drill, extra days, getting ready for the upcoming inspection) we get BAH.

    it is not a regulation and is NOT in the JFTR- it only says commands reserve the right to request a lease from any member when starting BAH.

    Makes sense as to why different people have different experiences! Thanks!

    DH looked up his old paperwork and I guess for his command if they were single they had to show proof of a lease, but if they were married they got it regardless.
