    Hey active duty ladies..

    Advertisements
    If a single guy lives on base, does he still get a BAH?

    Does that change if he's deployed?

    If a family lives on base do they get a BAH?

    We're NG, so base living isn't part of our lives... I'm just wondering..

    Okay anyone living on base housing...no matter if it is a single guy in barracks or a family do not get BAH because that goes to there base housing (they get it but dont see any extra money...,.like if they lived out in town and found a cheaper place than what there BAH covers) A single person in the military can live off base and recieve BAH but he has to fill out paper work and I think they have to approve it...and I think it is easier to do the higher your rank is.

    We live on base and get BAH, we're in privatized housing.

    A single guy, assuming he lives in the barracks, would not get a housing allowance. He wouldn't get it while deployed either, he'd be on a base, in a tent, on a ship, whatever.

    Nick and I aren't married and he is a third class and he is not eligible for BAH
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    But a Single guy would basically be getting it..he just wouldn't see it.;.he wouldn't be paying rent it would be paid for and that is what BAH does. Same with families .

    Oh, I think I see.. It would be like they'd be taking his "rent payment" right out of his check, righ?

    Yeah if he is in the barracks and most on base housing for families do the same thing as well..you get the money but you dont see it becuase it goes straight to your "Rent". BAH is Basic Allowance for Housing..it is extra money the military gives you for rent and stuff and the amount you get is based on the area you live in..some areas you get alot more and others alot less depending on the average pricing of what rent is in that area.

    We get a BAH based on what part of the state we live in..... There's no bases for NG or anything.... We just have our Camp where they all drill at, there's a PX and that's about it.. No houses...
