    BAH and housing

    Advertisements
    How does that work? Like we moved here the 17th. So, does it start the 15th?

    It probably won't kick in until a month after you've been there. It usually takes a month on everything to kick in.

    The reason I am asking is because we were told we had to give them 725 by the 30th for the prorate. We knew this but it's quite different from what we had to do in Washington. The thing is, we'd been staying out in town with my MIL and we only have like 200 in our account. So, I was going to ask the lady if i can come in and set up our allotment on the 30th as requested and give her the money order for the other on the 1st. But, I am starting to flip out because I didn't know if it would come out then or not.

    It has just been a really hard month with bills. I had to switch our insurance and that was a flipping 600 out of our account that isn't expected! Ugh. I hope she works with me. It's just one day!!

    We had to pay our prorate out of pocket(if I remember right), but our first month living here was free, so we pocketed $1900 in BAH.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    We had to pay the prorate out of pocket. Good thing we had enough in savings to cover it.

    I am going to ask a question, since it relates to BAH pay....

    If DB and I move in together while he is doing PTAD here in his hometown (and we of course put it in his name), does the BAH money go straight to the Apartment complex or is it given to the Service-member and then he/she pays the bill themself? (just out of couriosity)

    if it's not base housing which I assume it's not bc he's not married it goes to the service member and he pays the bill but unless he's an e5 he doesn't get BAH (i think) unless married
