I have a question that need to be answered to the best of some ones ability. I was just wondering, my husband is currently ETSing out of the Army. We are about 3 weeks from going home so its coming close ,but we were wondering when we will receive our BAH again because I know that we should receive it 1 last time in March’s payday. So how soon will we receive the BAH after we leave here?
You should continue to receive pay on schedule as long as he is considered active duty. His last paycheck will take longer than normal as they review his financial records to make sure his final paycheck is accurate. In my experience, it is anywhere from four to six weeks to get a final paycheck after ETS. Those who are retiring tend to get their final paycheck quicker than those who are discharging before retirement age.
