In addition to your normal military pay and allowances, all military members assigned to Eielson receive a Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) to help defray the higher-than-average expense of goods and services in Alaska. COLA rates are based on location, rank, years of service and number of dependents. If you’re authorized to live off base, you will receive Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) at Eielson’s rate. BAH rates are based on duty station ZIP code, marital status and pay grade. To learn more about COLA and BAH or to find your rate, visit www.defensetravel.dod.mil.
