There is good news for most military members – 2009 BAS and BAH rates have been announced, and the rates are going up for most people.
New BAS Rates:
Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS) Rates for CY09 were recently announced by the Secretary of Defense and become effective January 1, 2009.
- Enlisted: $323.87
- Officer: $223.04
New BAH Rates:
BAH rates vary by location, so you will need to check with the official BAH rate page hosted by the Pentagon. (note: this page has experienced intermittent down time recently; probably due to unexpected traffic levels).
