I am under Post-9/11 GI Bill, how do I get paid BAH?
Your BAH payments will be made via direct deposit by the DVA. The DVA pays benefits "in arrears," meaning your payment will be received in the month after it was earned. So, for example, your September BAH deposit will be made in first part of October. Note: you will not be paid BAH if you are currently on active duty as your service branch is already providing you with that benefit.
