BAH recertification policy

The Fort Stewart Defense Military Pay Office has been inundated with requests from Soldiers for a copy of their DA Form 5960. In order to recertify Basic Allowance for Housing, Soldiers need to see their Battalion S1, not the Fort Stewart Defense Military Pay Office.  The S1 will validate all supporting documents are loaded into IPERMS.  Soldiers will need to complete a DA Form 5960 and have it certified by their company level commander.  If designated by the company commander, the first commissioned officer in the Soldier's chain of command can certify.  Then the S1 will upload the DA Form 5960 into IPERMS.  The Fort Stewart Defense Military Pay Office will only be involved in the recertification if there is a change.
