Reminder: BAH-Transit to Single Members PCS Transferred from outside the U.S.

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

A Transit housing allowance (BAH-Transit) is a temporary housing allowance paid while a member is in a travel or leave status between permanent duty stations, provided the member is not assigned Government quarters, including dependents who may be assigned to Government owned or leased family-type quarters. The Transit rate continues during proceed time and authorized delays en route, including TDY en route.

During an  audit of pay accounts of members who were assigned to PATFORSWA BAHRAIN, it was found that several members without dependents were not paid BAH-Transit for delay enroute between PATFORSWA and their new permanent duty station.

The Coast Guard Pay Manual, Figure 3-19 & Section 3.G.5, provides that BAH-Transit shall be paid to members without dependents in an enroute status when:

(a) the member's old permanent duty station is an OHA (versus BAH) eligible locale; or
(b) the member is a non-prior service member in the accession pipeline.

The Entering BAH-TR User Guide, contains the procedures for crediting BAH-Transit. The inclusive period of BAH-Transit eligibility is the date of departure PCS through the day prior to reporting PCS. For single members, it is the responsibility of the SPO for the member's new PDS (the Reporting SPO) to enter the transaction to record BAH-Transit
