    BAH

    Advertisements
    I am fairly new to all this military living information and to a certain extent so is my husband. He is USAR and has been informed we should be getting BAH, and should have started getting it since our wedding on Aug. 31, 2013. I was entered into the DEERS system in January 2014 as his dependent. What do we need to do to get things moving with the BAH payments and will we get back paid?

    Thanks for any information and help!

    reservists generally do not get BAH unless they are activated to fulltime status...

    is your DH Fulltime ( meaning he goes to work for the Army reserves every day) or is he a weekend warrior ( drills one weekend a month, 2 weeks a year)?

    He just does weekends but will be going enrolled in the IPAP program in April, so I know we get it then. But someone told him we should get it now since we got married, but he wasn't eligible before marriage. Doesn't make sense to me, just trying to straighten some stuff out.

    weekend warriors do not get monthly BAH and only get paid when they drill. Sorry you were misinformed.

    If he is only doing drill, he will only get base pay, but when he goes to AT or any kind of school, he will get BAH and subsistence allowance.
