Ok, so this might have been asked before, but I can't find it, so I'm asking it myself.
FI and I are getting married May 6, 2011. He's an E-4 stationed in in Northern VA and I live in the Chicago area as I'm finishing up college. I would LIKE to move out there and move in together as soon as we're married, but FI doesn't think we can get BAH or backpay for BAH for at least an entire pay period. That would mean that I can't move out there until the BAH kicks in, which isn't something I want to do. FI is on TDY until Thanksgiving, so he can't really go to Finance on base to get these questions answered and it's really bothering me, so I thought I'd ask other Knotties with previous experience.
Can anyone tell me how this works? Is it possible for him to move off base and receive BAH BEFORE we get married so that we have a place I can move into as soon as we're married? Can we get a place as soon as we're married and receive backpayed BAH? Help!
