Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH), paid to a million service members living off base in the United States, will rise an average of 3.4 percent on Jan. 1. For the latest BAH rates, see Military.com's BAH pay charts. Some say this raise will not be enough to match rising rents and utility costs nationwide. Defense pay officials are executing a five-year plan, which Congress approved, to dampen stateside housing allowances gradually, so that by 2019 members will be paying five percent of housing costs out of pocket.
