Massachusetts Military Families: Overview of Basic Allowance for Housing

Military - Army 13.jpgBasic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is a U.S.-based allowance that provides uniformed Service members equitable housing compensation based on housing costs in local housing markets when government quarters are not provided. A Service member stationed overseas, who does not have government housing available, is eligible for Overseas Housing Allowance.

Military Pension Clauses: Fixed Dollar vs. Fixed Percentage

Former Military Spouses and the Survivor Benefit Plan

Military 4.jpgAs a military family law divorce attorney in Massachusetts, I am frequently asked by former military spouses what they need to do if their divorce decree requires the servicemember to provide survivor benefit plan coverage (SBP).  

Military Spouses: Do Not Overlook the Thrift Savings Plan as a Valuable Asset

Military 2.jpgThe military retirement system does not end with the pension and the survivor benefit plan.

This can be a valuable asset in property division, potentially containing tens of thousands of dollars of marital funds.
