    Re: Officer BAH vs Enlisted BAH

    Hello, I got a couple questions regarding eligibility for BAH. I'm an electrical engineer who's planning on applying to the USAF. If I get in, i will be O-1. I'm also single. Will I be eligible to receive BAH? My recruiter says I will but I dont always trust what recruiter says... Can anyone help me out on this? Thank you.

    Yes, you will get single rate BAH.

    There are only a few short tour locations overseas where as a single officer you will live on base and not receive BAH. However, for all stateside and most overseas locations there are no on-base single officer housing units available, and if there were they'd be optional. As an engineer you'll be assigned stateside and will get BAH.

    As mentioned above, unless you're on one of the very few remotes that have jr officer dorms, you'll get BAH and live off base.
