Overseas Station Allowances
Disbursing Clerk 1 & C - Military manual for administrative purposes
Individual Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA) Report
Does not have legal custody and control of the dependents Sharers The term sharer  as  applied  to  overseas  station allowances is defined as a member who is entitled to OHA and resides with one or more of the following persons: Members entitled to an OHA Federal   civilian   employees,   including dependents,  entitled  to  a  living  quarters allowance Individuals,   excluding   dependents   of   the member,  who  contribute  money  toward  the payment of rent, mortgage, and/or utilities Vicinity For the purpose of overseas station allowances, dependents will be considered to be residing in the vicinity of the member’s duty station for any period during which they reside in the country, state (when in Alaska or Hawaii), or territory or possession of the United  States  within  which  the  member’s  PDS  is located.  When  a  member  resides  with  the  dependents at, and commutes to, the PDS from a place in an adjacent country  (except  the  United  States),  the  dependents  will be considered also as residing in the vicinity of the member’s  PDS. ENTITLEMENT  AND  PAYABILITY REQUIREMENTS The general conditions under which OHAs and COLAs  are  payable  are  the  same.  Based  on  the overseas  command,  entitlement  and  playability requirements  for  TLAs  may  vary.  In  the  following paragraphs,  we  will  discuss  the  general  conditions under which these allowances begin and end. Later in the  chapter  as  we  discuss  each  entitlement  in  greater detail, we will look at the more specific eligibility and playability requirements. Commencement Generally, a member’s entitlement to OHA and COLA begins on the day the member reports to the new PDS. The allowances begin on the day following the day the member reports to the new PDS under the following circumstances: The member reports without dependents and is entitled  to  a  mileage  allowance  in  lieu  of transportation  plus  flat  per  diem  allowance (MALT PLUS) or TLA. The member reports with dependents and is entitled to a MALT PLUS for the member and a TLA for the dependents or is entitled to a TLA for  both  the  member  and  dependents. Commencement  of  entitlement  may  also  vary based on the location of the old duty station. In the case of a member with dependents, it may vary according to the vicinity in which the dependents were residing during the member’s tour at the old PDS before the member received orders to the new PDS. In some cases, the entitlement can begin  before the member’s arrival at the new PDS. A common example of this is when the dependents precede the member to the new PDS. In these  cases,  however,  the  member’s  old  PDS  must  be outside  CONUS,  and  the  dependents  must  have  been residing in the vicinity of the old PDS before the orders to the new PDS were issued. If the member’s old duty station  is  inside  CONUS,  the  commencement  of entitlement  must  begin  when  the  dependents  arrive  on or after the effective date of the member’s orders or the day  the  member  departs  CONUS,  whichever  is  later. Termination Entitlement to OHA and COLA generally ends on the day before the member departs in compliance with PCS orders. If dependents remain after the member departs because of reasons beyond the control of the member or dependents, the allowances may continue up to 60 days after the effective date of the member’s orders. Some examples of qualifying reasons are illness or  hospitalization  of  dependents;  completion  of  school term; lack of acceptable housing at the new PDS; and difficulties related to transportation of dependents, shipment  of  household  goods,  or  exigencies  of  the service. In the following sections, we will discuss each of these  allowances  in  detail.  Notice  how  entitlement  and playability conditions vary, depending on the type of allowance. 8-2
