The BAH is designed to help you afford housing for yourself and/or your family. It’s not a “one-size-fits-all” program. The amount of BAH you receive is determined by your base and your rank. Also, those who claim dependents receive a different amount than those without dependents. Make sure you look up the right amount of BAH for your rank!

This benefit of serving the military is one of my favorites. As a mortgage lender, when my clients apply for the VA loan AND are receiving BAH, it makes the loan process go much quicker. The BAH can verify your income for me (which is a critical step in being approved for a loan). Using the BAH and the VA loan is one of the best ways to take advantage of the home loan programs offered to those in the military.
