categories.   The   following   entitlements   are   for members who separately pay for all utilities: Member married to a member and maintaining a joint household— Each member is entitled to half   of   the   utility/recurring   maintenance allowance. Member defined as a sharer— Member is entitled to  a  pro  rata  share  of  the  utility/recurring maintenance  allowance. Member  with  dependents-Member  is  entitled to   the   full   utility/recurring   maintenance allowance. Member  without  dependents  and  not  defined  as a sharer— Member is entitled to 75 percent of the utility/recurring maintenance allowance. For those members whose rent includes all utilities, the  member  is  not  entitled  to  the  utility/recurring maintenance  allowance.  However,  the  appropriate allowance as determined previously will be added to the member’s rental allowance ceiling when the OHA is computed. When rent includes some utilities, the member may not   be   entitled   to   the   entire   portion   of   the utility/recurring  maintenance  allowance  for  his  or  her category. A separate computation based on the climate and utilities paid must be made according to specific tables in the  JFTR. In this case, the amount to which the  member  is  not  entitled  will  be  added  to  the appropriate  rental  allowance  ceiling  when  the member’s  OHA  is  computed. COMPUTATION PROCEDURE.—  Figure 8-2 shows each step in the procedure used to compute a monthly  OHA. COMPUTATION FOR A MONTHLY OHA 1. Ascertain the member’s monthly rent in U.S. dollars. When rent is paid in foreign currency, convert to dollars by using the Rate of Exchange given in the JFTR, appendix K. 2. Ascertain the appropriate rental allowance ceiling for the member’s paygrade and dependency status shown in the JFTR, appendix K. If rent includes all utilities, add the utility/recurring maintenance allowance to the maximum rental allowance ceiling. If rent includes some (but not all) utilities, add the amount computed in item 3 to the maximum rental allowance ceiling. 3.  Ascertain  the  average  utility/recurring  maintenance  allowance  from  the  JFTR,  appendix  K.  The  following conditions  apply: a. Rent includes all utilities: Member is not entitled to a separate utility/recurring maintenance allowance; however, this allowance should be added to the rental allowance ceiling determined in step 2. b. Rent includes no utilities: A member with dependents who is not a sharer is entitled to the full utility/recurring-maintenance allowance. A member without dependents who is not a sharer is entitled to 75 percent of the utility/recurring maintenance allowance. A member with or without dependents who is a sharer is entitled to a pro rata share of the utility/recurring maintenance allowance. c. Rent includes some utilities: Member may not be entitled to full utility/recurring maintenance allowance. Compute percentage according to the tables in the JFTR based on climate and utilities paid. If the member is not entitled to the full allowance, the amount to which the member is not entitled is added to the maximum rental allowance ceiling determined in step 2. 4.  Compare  monthly  rent  computed  in  step  1  with  rental  allowance  ceiling  determined  in  steps  2  and  3.  The lesser of the two is used to compute OHA. 5. Add the amount determined in step 4 and the utility/recurring maintenance allowance calculated in step 3 to determine the total housing expenses to be compared with member’s BAQ or FSA-Type I. 6. Deduct from the sum determined in step 5 the member’s BAQ or FSA-Type I, whichever applies. If the result is negative or zero, the member will not receive an OHA. If the result is positive, the member will receive an OHA equal to the amount of this result. Figure  8-2.-Step-by-step  procedure  for  computing  OHA. 8-5
