Military Housing Options | Military Housing Allowance and Benefits Assistance
Moving is common in the military. Whether you’re relocating to another state or country, there’s a pattern to making your new nest – finding a home, packing, moving your stuff and sorting out other logistics. As a service member, you’re given various Department of Defense allowances to help offset the costs of housing and moving. Military OneSource helps simplify the process so you can make the most of your housing allowances and benefits to land the best housing option for you and your family. Master your move and focus on your new home with the help of Military OneSource.
One of the great benefits of moving with the military is that you and your family will likely have a number of housing options once you reach your new location. Each comes with different upsides and caveats, so be sure to consider your options carefully and contact the housing office at your military installation to find out which options are available to you at the time of your move.
Accessibility can mean different things to different people. It can range from a wheelchair ramp and wider doorways to something as simple as a special doorbell.
Moving is an exciting time, and moving on to a military installation for the first time can be a great opportunity to become part of a service-oriented community. You’ll likely have many things in common with your new neighbors, and save some money by living in more affordable housing provided to you by the military.
For members of the military, deciding whether to rent or buy is a financial decision not to be taken lightly. Part of mastering your move is finding the best place for you and your family – and your budget – in your new location.
Whether you are house hunting, paying off debt or looking to buy car, financial calculators can help you explore financial decisions...before you spend any money.
Mastering your move and finding a good place for your family to live can take a lot of time and energy, so it's not surprising that something like renters insurance could be overlooked. However, it's a small cost that can save you big money if something happens to your personal belongings.
