    San Diego went down? For real? Only a couple bucks, but, wow.

    If it goes down you are grandfathered in, so if you are already receiving a high rate for that location you will continue to receive the higher rate.

    Most ranks went up. Weirdly, at DH's rank, it went *down* slightly for w/ dependents, and up for without. So weird. (Thankfully we are grandfathered in, even though it's not a huge decrease anyway.)

    Also, once again, whomever calculates these things is smoking something. Even though they are phasing in the new plan under which BAH covers a bit less, there is NFW it costs less to rent a home in San Diego. No way. It's almost laughable.

    Not to mention the huge COLA cut over the summer. I feel bad for new comers, the wait list for on base housing is about to get crazy.

    The same thing happened on our end. Something even more strange? Dh is getting promoted in a few months and he makes more bah now than what his peers will be making when they all pin on. Thank heaven for grandfathering!

    That's crazy! My rent woulda gone up 10% to $1745 if DH and I hadn't bought. Did you see the report (I think kpbs had it) about how there's a sudden dramatic shortage of rentals in SD right now and it's making prices spike? Hope people don't get totally priced out of this city, jeeze.

    Ours here went up by like $20. But we're moving next year after DH finishes school.. Benning surprisingly went down for DH's rank with dependents, but up without dependents. We're living on post for the first time though, so his BAH going down about 200 bucks kind of solidified that for me. He was hinting for me to find a house off post with all the money he'd get for housing, but it wasn't worth it to be off base with him working so much and it def won't be worth it now!
