    because finance and mpf obviously dont...I got 6 different answers from 6 different people about whats going to happen

    heres the situation

    me and my wife just got married....im stationed out here at ft meade shes still finishing tech school at goodfellow and orders to offutt

    we are both linguists im just ground and shes air

    we both knew it would probably be a year till we get stationed together BUT

    do we freaking get sep pay or not? also my dorm manager said that since we arent stationed together its like im "single" so i cant get bah

    my 1st shirt said thats ridiculous and that im not allowed to live in the dorms being married



    HELP ...nobody knows what the fuck is going on :mad:

    listen to your shirt.
    you can live in the dorm if you're married, but you should still get bah.
    but if the 1st sgt is telling you to pack up and get out of the dorm... i'd be stoked. fuck the dorms.

    i don't know about the sep pay.

    1st shirt has more pull than dorm manager.
    Best thing to do in this situation is to start asking people what the AFIs say. If they don't know, ask which AFI governs it, research it yourself.
    Start holding people accountable for not knowing their job. If the guy behind the counter doesn't know, ask to speak to NCOIC. Ask the NCOIC which AFI governs their process.

    Note: Maintaining tact and respect for rank will allow you to challenge anyone of any rank respectfully, but pick your battles. Money - should always be fought for.

    my wife is in personnel. She is TDY at Lackland right now, But I know she would know this. I will ask if I remember. I know there is a guy that is married living in the dorms here and he gets BAH.

    my wife said fill out a AF form 638 she thinks.... she has all married airmen coming in for tech school fill it out and they recieve seperation pay so i dont see why you wouldn't. Try to fill it out and bring to finance with marriage ceritficate.

    Plus, you can live in the dorms, but no BAH. If you move off base, then you are entitled to the BAH.
