BAH and BAS, are They Included in a Service Members Income for Purposes of Calculating Child Support?
Active duty military service members, as part of their compensation, often times receive a monthly stipend for both housing and food. This monthly stipend consists of a Basic Allowance for Housing payment (“BAH”) and a Basic Allowance for Subsistence payment (“BAS”). BAH will be provided in the event that a service member is not being furnished with government provided housing. If government furnished housing is available, a service member may not receive a BAH payment or will received a reduced BAH payment. BAS is typically provided regardless of the availability of government provided meals.
