New 2019 BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing) rates were released by the Department of Defense on December 14, 2018. The BAH infographic and information below have been updated to reflect the new rates.
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.
What does BAH actually cover in 2019? BAH is meant to cover 95% of your rental costs in 2019. This has decreased from 96% in 2018 and 100% in prior years. The decline relates to budget cuts released by the Department of Defense in 2015. This was part of a five-year plan, and so the percentage will not go any lower than 95% starting in 2020.
Overall, BAH rates have increased more than 2.5% across the board. This is significantly more than the overall increase in 2018, which was just 0.7%.
