HI there!

DH is at AIT now, and I am currently and have been receiving (since BCT) separation pay. I think it is $250. I will have to look at the stub, but I believe that is right. If it isn't, it isn't lower than $150. Hope that helps... PLUS you get your housing allowance too. In TN ours was about $869 and now in OH it is about $767...

However, I have dependents and that may make the difference. ?? mullins? Did you have dependents?

You can find pay information at [url]http://www.militarypay.com[/url]... I thought it was a helpful site.

Yes, that is what it means... anytime you are away for 30 days (I believe) from your family you get separation pay. I don't think it matters the more dependents you have. It is my understanding it is a flat rate.
