How much more does the Navy pay when you get married?

Postby leith55 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 3:33 pm

My Fiancee is an MM3 Petty Officer for Nuclear Power stationed in Ballston Spa New York. He currently receives housing and food allowances. I believe housing is 1,100 and food is $300 a month. We are planning on getting married very soon but are very tight on cash to fly home and have a wedding with family. I heard that when we get married he will receive more money for having a dependent. Can anyone tell us how much more a month he would make for being married to me? I am just assuming $300 for one more persons mouth to feed. If anyone knows this Id really appreciate the help beings we are drowning in our bills and can use any extra money sooner than later...

No you won't get any additional allowances, since he is already getting a housing allowance. There is no allowance for just having a dependent. This is actually the housing allowance. And he's already getting it.

Bottom line, you aren't going to get any additional money from the Navy.

He will go from getting BAH at the single rate to with dependents rate. In all it will be maybe $2-300 more depending on where he is stationed.

Edit:

Right now his BAH is $1029.00

When you get maiired it will be $1379.00

His BAH (housing allowance) will increase slightly - usually a couple of hundred a month. He will start getting the BAH w/Dependents rate, instead of the single rate.

That is it - no more money.

I don't have the exact numbers for you (sorry!) but my fiance is also an MM3 in power school (but he's in Goose Creek, SC). He has told me that he'd get more money when we get married, I think it's about $300 but I'm not 100% sure.

You heard wrong! The only difference is that he will be entitled to the BAH w/ dependents rate.
