    Important OHA change: regarding living with friends or family....

    Advertisements
    from the JFTR/ this is in effect 12/01/12 please read carefully


    *6. If a member and/or dependent live(s) with relatives or friends (i.e., jointly occupies) in a dwelling owned by the relatives or friends, the rent amount is zero, even if there is a lease or written document. This restriction does not apply, when the member/dependent leases lodging from a relative or friend with a bona fide, standard written lease, in those instances when the relative or friend concerned does not jointly occupy the leased house or apartment and the friend or relative is in the business of renting on a regular basis the lodgings involved. There is no authority to pay MIHA or the utility/maintenance allowance when living with relatives or friends

    I think this is a good change. Help save money for the military.

    so, if i'm reading this right, if a family goes home for deployment if the couple decides to live with family they will not get any BAH?

    Ah, okay just read more into it-- so this is only for OHA (outside of the US).

    It's only for OHA. So only effects you if you're with family overseas, like your family is German and for some reason you live with them. I doubt it will save money, will just make it so people possibly max out their OHA on their own residences or ghost residences and still live with family.
