Hi! I am getting married to a soldier in about 2 months. How long after we get married will it take to get our BAH so I can move to his duty station. (I`m in TN and he`s in TX) And what steps do we need to take in order to receive our BAH? Thanks.
As soon as you get married, he needs to take the marriage certificate to finance to have his records updated. In addition, you will need to get your military ID and be enrolled in DEERS. Typically, BAH will go into effect on the next month’s paycheck and will be back paid to the date of your marriage. Congratulations!
