Military Housing Allowance 2018: What Does BAH Cover? [Infographic]

December 15, 2017

You may have heard the term Basic Allowance for Housing, but what does military BAH actually cover? Understanding the different military benefits available to you and your family is the first step in making sure you are fully taking advantage of the resources available to you.

Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) provides housing allowance for uniformed service members who are either married or have dependents. BAH rates change from year to year, and are determined by your rank, dependency status, geographical location, and the median rental and utility costs in your area.
All sounds good, right? Unfortunately, in a recent study by SpouseBuzz, over 86% of respondents reported their BAH allowance either just barely or did not cover their housing costs. More often than not, military families are not receiving enough to cover their military housing and basic renters insurance.
With Lincoln Military Housing, we’ve got your back. In our communities, your 2018 BAH covers your entire rent, renters insurance, gas, water, and normal electricity usage — everything you need to support your family. In addition, we offer automatic payments, so you don’t have to worry about transferring your BAH to cover your rent or mortgage, and we don’t require credit checks or deposits. This flexibility frees your family up to focus on spending time together, not stressing about spending time on budgeting or remembering payments.
