Dollars and Sense

All Airmen are required to revalidate their housing pay entitlements if they are receiving the Basic Allowance for Housing at the “With Dependent” rate or the “BAH-Diff” rate. During the month of April, all Airmen with a social security number with the last two digits between 11 and 20 will be required to revalidate their entitlement. Revalidation requires each Airman to present the appropriation documentation, in person, to the 56th Comptroller Squadron Customer Service office and complete an AF Form 594. Airmen who are not required to report in April should stay tuned for future messages regarding a reporting month. Failure to revalidate may result in a loss of entitlement and, potentially, the creation of a debt collection case. For more information, call 1st Lt. William Liaw at 623-856-6035 or visit the 56th CPTS office located in Bldg. 1150.

Tuition assistance — a great benefit

In my opinion, tuition assistance is one of the best benefits that we as active-duty military members have available. During my 17 years in the Air Force, I have seen this benefit increase from 75 percent of tuition being paid to 100 percent. Additionally, most of us experienced this benefit being eliminated for a short...
