Soldiers with dependents reminded to keep records up to date
FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. -- 24 October 2017 -- Soldiers who
receive a basic allowance for housing and have dependents are
reminded to keep their records up to date to prevent any disruptions in
their Basic Allowance for Housing, or BAH, entitlements, according to
experts within the Army's Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1.

To help ensure the overall readiness of the force, the Army G-1 has
notified 65,000 Soldiers that they needed to provide proof of
dependency to justify their housing rates, according to J.D. Riley,
deputy chief of the compensation and entitlements division, G-1.

According to Riley, examples of dependent documents include a
marriage license, birth certificate, a court-ordered child support
agreement, divorce decrees, and secondary dependency approval
from the Defense Finance and Accounting Service.

An "All Army Activities" message, or ALARACT, about the recertification
of BAH entitlements is scheduled for release in November, Riley added.
At that point, Soldiers will have 60 days to meet the suspense.

Identified Soldiers will need to bring their dependent documents to
their unit's human resources specialist, not their local finance office
to update their iPERMS record. Submitted paperwork should be
identified with the word "audit" to guarantee that it receives a high
priority, Riley said

Deployed Soldiers are exempt from this requirement; however, they
will have 60 days upon return from post-deployment leave to update

After 60 days, Soldiers who do not provide the proper paperwork will
see a reduction in BAH. At that point, they will need to start the process
over by filling out a new BAH certification form and submitting their
dependent documentation.

Riley said actions would be taken against any Soldiers who willfully take
advantage of the system. Those Soldiers will be held liable for any
additional entitlements they have received, he said.

In the end, the proactive approach taken by Army G-1 is about
protecting a Soldier's entitlements, Riley emphasized.

"When life events happen: divorce, marriage, the birth of children, it is
so important for a Soldier to review their records," he said.
