    living apart

    Advertisements
    I have some questions for those of you who in live in one place and your hubs is stationed in another.

    Is BAH based on his zip code or yours?

    Where does he live? In barracks, on a ship?? does that cost you extra?

    Can he request housing even if the family isn't there yet and not already living in base housing?

    BAH is based on his zip code unless it's considered arduous duty. My dh had to live on the ship. If he's on shore duty then he would have to get his own place.
    If it's unaccompanied orders then they would get him a room. I'm not sure about the last question.

    Forgot, my dh got a room from time to time, but we paid for it. On the ship, it didn't cost any extra.

    yes he can request housing even if you have not moved there yet. BAH is based on your youngest childs zip code IF it is considered a hardship tour of duty (meaning you are not allowed to come). if he is stationed in the states and you just have not made the move then it will be based on his zip code. As he is married he will not be allowed to live in a barracks because those are reserved for non married soldiers. he will either have to live of post or in on post housing.

    We are paying for 2 households right now. At Norfolk, E5 and above married are not allowed to live in the barracks. So unless he is on a ship, DO NOT do it.

    The last question, you and the kids can not be gone for longer than 90 days at a stretch.

    Where does he live? In barracks, on a ship?? does that cost you extra? He lives on the ship.

    Can he request housing even if the family isn't there yet and not already living in base housing? We will be PCSing to Japan. We've been told that he can not request housing until we get there. He will live in the barracks until we get there. And then it is in a hotel until we get housing. Blech! We don't know about in SD because we have never planned on moving there!
