I have been entitled to the with dependent rate BAH for the last 16 months since my son was born, but have only been receiving the without dependent (as I was pregnant). This is pay I am owed. I was just wondering if after this form makes it to finance, and all the paperwork on my side is good, how long does it normally take for me to get my money back? TIA

Your S1 shop has an issue. 16 months is IG phone call time.

If you submitted the BAH verification form and enrolled your child in DEERS then you should involve your COC and IG

Most finance issues are settled within about a month. That's assuming everything on your side is good and there are no other factors such as you being married to another service member.

Apologies Lexie, I now see you are a paralegal, so you have access to the resources of JAG, in addition to your own expertise. Get one of the JAG lawyers or DOD civilian lawyers, if any, at your office, to help you file an Art 138 complaint. Heck, maybe you know how! But that is absolutely ridiculous and inexcusable how that is being handled. You deserve better.
