How Does BAH as Rent Work?
Calculate your BAH: https://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/bahCalc.cfm
Using your Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) for rent is easy. Initially, Airmen will submit an AF Form 594 to the base finance office to initiate the BAH entitlement. Next, sign a Resident Occupancy Agreement (ROA) to give permission to allot your BAH entitlements to rent. After your information is processed, your BAH will be collected by a management company on behalf of the Air Force and paid to Mayroad on the first of each month. Your family's take-home pay won't change at all — you will simply see a "rent allotment" in the third column of your Leave and Earnings Statement (LES). Rent is paid in arrears, which means the allotment that is paid on the first of the month is for the previous month's rent.
