Lost Housing Funds
Organized by: Lavell Nolen
PORTSMOUTH, VA Hello My name is Lavell Nolen and I'm raising money to help pay my rent and break the lease. I'm in the military and was receiving BAH which was 1200 a month for cost living due to overflow in barracks manning. I recently changed duty station that are about 20 mins away from each other. When I got to my new command they stripped me of my Bah saying you're just an E3- my rank at the time. Submit your request again when you're you are an E4. I researched instructions and found a few that stated that if commuting from place of old to new duty stations you are allowed to keep your BAH but my new command refuses to reinstate it. I made E4 recently and another instruction states that you can bring in your proof of promotion ie Frocking letter with BAH request and submit your reuest. Once again I'm being giving a denial saying that I need to be paid as an E4. So I'm left with left no choice but to break the lease and a fine of 1860 on top of the rent payment. As well trying to stay current with other bills and services tha t i will have to pay cancellation fees on.
