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.

I had a pay problem on active duty. I did not go through S1, I just went straight to finance. The six month delay I dealt with was the people in finance not doing their job with the pay inquiries and supporting documents I dropped off every month for six months.
When I finally called DFAS, the guy had my problem fixed in 15 minutes and showed up on the next LES.
So the answer is it takes 15 minutes when someone does their job.
