Basic Allowance for Housing rates across the country increased for 2013! The 3.8 percent increase isn’t due to one single factor- rates are based on the combination of local San Antonio TX costs for rent, utilities and renter’s insurance for housing, so market fluctuation of one or more of those factors in a given location will affect BAH rates.

 

Luckily for anyone in the military, any active duty service members who might see a drop in BAH for their market will have their BAH protected.  This is due to the “individual rate protection,” adopted by Congress over a decade ago. On the other hand, those who live in an area that sees a BAH increase will enjoy a bump in their monthly housing allowance.
