2024 BAH Rate Calculator, OHA Calculator & GI Bill BAH Rates

BAH Calculator

Update July 3 2024: The Air Force announced the return of the warrant officer position, a rank the service hasn’t used since 1958. The Air Force closed its first round of warrant officer applications in May 2024 and while the pay charts below are not service-specific, Air Force warrant officers should check the “W” portion of the pay chart to learn what they may qualify for once they are officially sworn in as new Warrant Officers.
