Wow...I sure am glad they cut 100 bucks off my BAH this year whlie the cost of living here went up
where are the new rates?
nevermind on the calculator
good, san diego didn't change for E5 no deps. E5 w/ went up a lot, over 2 grand now.
our with dependents went up 100 dollars...what the fuck is that shit
so now an e-4 gets 1130 here while e-4 with dependents gets 1550
wait you're complaining w/ dependents gets more than without? umm ya, they have to house more people, pay utilities for more people, etc.
getting 400 more yes i am
im not saying they shouldn't get more but the spread was about 300 dollars last year...so how bah with dependents goes up and without goes down doesnt make any fucking sense to me
If you already get BAH your rate won't go down, so why you bitching?
you sure about that?
Ya you dont lose anything. The only time you'll lose BAH at one spot is if you PCS to the same area. They'll lock you into that lower rate then. It could of dropped $900/mo and you still get what you were getting.
But now with dependents will go up $100. So it is still a $100 more spread that you think they're not entitled to.
I'll tell you right now that non-dependents get too much in San Diego and dependents dont get enough. But hey who am I to complain, I get to pocket a lot of $$ every paycheck.
ok...well thats good at least...means I can stay where I am I guess without paying oop ...still pretty shitty though...most places that aren't in the ghetto around ft meade are going for at least 1250 + utilities
What this guy said. Your BAH doesn't ever go down if you stay in the same location, but it can go up. So you're not gonna lose any money man.
its pretty much the opposite here....2 br's arent that much more than 1 br's....you can get a pretty nice 2 br place around here for 1350-1400...so now they get that extra 150 or so to bank
like i said if you are a single airman it means living in the ghetto or getting a roomate now
what happens if i decide to move on base for 2009 and then next year its still lower than 1220...does that mean i'm going to get the new rate then?
E-5 with DEPENDENTS:
are you at meade too?
where are the 2009 rates?
nevermind, found them
914...up from 830
shitty AETC base ftl
No, but my BAH is based on Meade's rate.
meade's rate is BULLSHIT
its like 250 dollars more at andrews and its fucking 15 miles down the road...housing is NOT more expensive there
