How does basic allowance for housing (BAH) work?
Active-duty service members may pay rent each month by automatic allotment. How easy is that? Active-duty service members may set up an allotments in two different ways:
Allotments may be collected and managed by Military Assistance Company (MAC)*, an allotment management contractor who works for the Army
You may choose a discretionary allotment through your bank or credit union.
If you move in after the first of the month your first month's rent is pro-rated. For active-duty service members, rent by automatic allotment is paid on the first day of the following month (in arrears). So, the payment for the current month will be paid on the first day of the next month. This transaction will appear on your Leave and Earning Statement (LES). This is different than how rent payments are traditionally made off post.
Stopping a rent allotment upon move out is as easy as starting it. Once Corvias Property Management has officially cleared an active-duty resident and any charges for damages beyond normal wear and tear have been paid, the allotment will be stopped. After move-out, any refund due will be made within 10 business days after Corvias Property Management receives the allotment for the last month's rent.
The rent payment process is designed to be smooth and seamless. For active-duty service members, if the BAH does not appear on the LES or if the allotment is not collected, the service member should contact their local community office directly. If the rent money is not taken out by allotment, the service member will be responsible for paying rent in certified funds until the problem is corrected.
*MAC has been processing military allotments since 1985 and serves military housing offices in all branches of service. The MAC payment system is fully automated and is interfaced with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS). This system facilitates starting, managing, tracking, updating and stopping BAH allotments. This system is for Active Duty Service Members.
