Hampton Roads VA BAH

merchsquare The Department of Defense has published the new  basic allowance for housing rates for service members for 2009.

The Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is based on geographic duty location, pay grade, and dependency status. The intent of BAH is to provide uniformed service members accurate and equitable housing compensation based on housing costs in local civilian housing markets, and is payable when government quarters are not provided.

2009 Update on BAH

Service members  received an average 6.9 percent boost in their basic allowance for housing compensation benefit in 2009. The planned BAH average increase, starting Jan. 1, 2009, is only slightly smaller than the 2008 rate increase.

Although BAH rates will generally either remain stable or increase, there may be some areas that decrease due to a decreasing local rental market. However, individual rate protection will still apply. Individual rate protection prevents the decrease of a BAH rate as long as the status of a service member remains unchanged. The service member will receive any published BAH increase, but no decrease. When the new BAH rates go into effect, rate protection assures that the service members typical out-of-pocket costs may be less, but never more, than upon their reporting date.
