    Question No BAH between duty stations update post 3

    Advertisements
    DH just called me and told me that we will not be getting BAH between our duty stations. He checks out of Drum tomorrow , but we dont check into Benning till June 10th. We took leave so we could get a house and set it up before he went back to work. Why do you not get BAH between check out of one duty station and checking into another? You still have to live somewhere in between. makes not sense to either of us.
    Thank you in advance with answers!

    Only thing I could think of is which BAH would they give you? You are no longer in the first area, and you haven't checked into the 2nd one yet? Maybe travel pay and those things are supposed to cover hotels and stuff?

    Not sure hun, hope you get answers!

    from what I remember you get perdeim and travel pay to assist with hotels and that while in transit and then TLE as you are leaving/when you get to the base. BAH stops when you final out of housing until you check into housing. DH checks into housing ASAP when we get to the new base even if it is before his report date. I believe there is some other type of pay they can get though, can't remember what it is.

    Ummm that doesn't sound right. I could have sworn that DH got the BAH for his OLD duty station until he checked into his NEW duty station. I could be wrong, but I'm almost POSITIVE that's how it worked.

    I just double checked and he did indeed get his BAH from his outgoing duty station until he checked into the new command. The thing is, just because someone is on leave doesn't mean they don't have to pay for a place to live. He took 30 days of leave but was only traveling 2 of those days really LOL. He had to have a place to live in between--and he stayed put for 2 weeks after checking out.

    I think he needs to talk to someone else, that doesn't sound right AT ALL.

    I'm glad he was able to get the correct info...i hope the first person he went to has also been told so he or she doesn't continue to give out incorrect info. I hope your move goes smoothly

    thr BAH continues from unit to unit- even tho they check out- the rate will be at the old rate until they check into the new unit.

    the only time the housing allowance stops is when coming from an OHA location
