    Question

    Advertisements
    Im not sure if this would be the right place to post this question, but Im dating an active duty army guy stationed in alaska. I want to move up there with him next december but i was told that he couldnt live off base until hes a sgt or e-5 or whatever. Hes not a sgt or anything but im not sure what he is exactly. So we cant live together then or do we have to be married or engaged or something? help O_O

    Well being engaged is irrelevant. Unfortunately, you have to be married for any sort of benefits.

    I'm almost positive he could live off post but he won't get BAH until he is an e5

    I think you have to get approval to live off base if you're not E5. According to my DB is rarely granted. He definitely wouldn't get BAH though. If he is E2 or E3 the chances of him getting approved for off base housing is very slim.

    On another note, have you browsed Apartments close to his base. Maybe you could move up there and get a small apt for the mean time?

    If he is lower than E-5 he will have to get special permission to live off post, above E-5 not so much an issue. Where in Alaska is he stationed?

    Yup the only way he could get off post is if there is a shortage of room in barracks..Or if he is married...and if you two were married reguardless of rank he will still get BAH
