Overseas Housing Allowance Rent Questionnaire

OVERSEAS HOUSING ALLOWANCE (OHA) Rental Allowances are based on the location of your Permanent Duty Station (PDS). Rental ceilings are typically based on actual rents and are set to cover the rent paid by 80 percent of service members with dependents within each pay grade at each location. Unaccompanied members or members without dependents are entitled to 90% of the with-dependents rate.

Establishing or adjusting OHA Rental Allowances can take up to two pay periods once we have all of the required data. DTMO does not have the legal authority to set rates retroactively.

About the Survey:  This survey is used to measure rental expenses incurred by Uniformed Service members stationed overseas, who reside in private housing.    The data collected will assist in the determination of Overseas Housing Allowances (OHA) paid to members in your country of assignment.

Authority:  This survey is in accordance with 10 USC 136 and 37 USC 403(c).

Participation:   Participation in this survey is voluntary.  Failure to respond will not result in penalty to the respondent.  However, maximum response is encouraged so that data will be representative of your country of assignment. 

Instructions:  To ensure that this survey results in valid rental allowances, please accurately answer all questions.

Estimated Time to Complete Survey:  10 minutes
