These are my top recommended credit cards for this month. Let me show you how to get the $450-550 annual fees waived exclusively for US military personnel in my five day, 100% free course.

Just like for getting married in the military, your basic pay does not increase by adding a dependent. If you're already married and claim your spouse as a dependent, you won't see your BAH increase either.

If your child is your first dependent, then your BAH may increase. Check the Official BAH Calc to see the difference between dependent BAH and single BAH. Usually a couple hundred dollars.

There may be some tax benefits as well, but you should probably consult a certified tax adviser for that information.

How much does having kids increase your military pay?
