Changes Coming Down The Pipeline On January 1st 2016


Image title

As of January 1st 2016, a 3.4% increase will be made to the aggregate BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing) for active service members. Which, will be about a $54 increase. However, this increase will vary per duty station based upon cost of living for certain areas. Some will see a very small amount of an increase if any at all. 

These changes are part of a BAH program, which plans to slow growth in the future. There will be a 5% out of pocket cost for living expenses which wont occur until 2019. This will couple on top of the already 1% put of pocket costs based on the National defense Authorization Act. 

 The Pentagon plans to maintain an individual rate protection for service members so that they will not see their BAH drop.  Only new reporting members would receive the respective location's BAH rate. 


As for those who will PCS to Arizona, below is a chart based upon rank from E-1 to O-7 for those with, and without dependents, along with the respective areas where the increase will impact.
