2018 BAH Rates Announced


The rates for 2018 BAH (Basic Housing Allowance) have been released.

Some areas may see lower BAH rates, however, there is a provision of individual rate protection to all members.  Even if rates in your area goes down, an individual member who maintains uninterrupted Basic Allowance for Housing eligibility in a given location will not see his/her Basic Allowance for Housing rate decrease.  This ensures that service members who have made long-term commitments leases or purchases are not penalized if the area’s housing costs decrease.

To find out what your BAH will be in 2018 use the DOD BAH Calculator. To use the calculator you need to know the zip code for your duty station (not the zip code you live in).
