    I'm getting married in december and someone told me it was possible to get the advance in BAH before I even start getting it, to help pay for the wedding. Has anyone heard of this? If so how does it work and how hard is it to do?

    You realize if you qualify for it, you will have to pay it back over a 12 month period, right?

    I wouldn't want to start a marriage off by going into debt for it.

    but you'd also need justification for finance from your first shirt in order to do it. (at least USAF does)

    While it is better than an interest bearing loan, it is still a loan.

    yeah but its not like I need the bah.

    I'm getting married in december, tdying for 5 months in march, then going to korea for a year. so it'll be a year and some change after i get married til I'll be needing the bah that I'll be collecting.

    But anyway, I went to finance on my lunch and Senior Airman Dufas told me I can't do it because i don't NEED the money, even though I may think I might.

    So /thread

    talk to your own supervisor, give a good reason and he should be able to make a call
