How Does Rent Work?
- Active-duty service members may pay rent each month by automatic allotment. How easy is that?! As an added bonus, if paying by automatic military allotment, no security deposit is required.
- DoD Civilians and DoD Contractors may pay on the 1st of the month by Personal Check, Cashier's Check and/or Money Order. A security deposit is required for these groups.
Active-duty service members may set up an allotments in two different ways:
- Allotments may be collected and managed by Military Assistance Company (MAC)*, an allotment management contractor who works for the Army.
- You may choose a discretionary allotment through your bank or credit union.
What about the 1st month's rent and the 1st allotment?
- Remember, your first month's rent is pro-rated if you move in after the first of the month.
- For active-duty service members, rent by automatic allotment is paid on the first day of the following month (in arrears). So the payment for the current month will be paid on the first day of the next month. This transaction will appear on your LES. This is different than how rent payments are traditionally made off post.
Stopping a rent allotment upon move out is as easy as starting it:
- Once Corvias has officially cleared the resident and any charges for damages beyond normal wear and tear have been paid, the allotment will be stopped.
- After move-out, any refund due will be made within 10 business days after Corvias receives the allotment for the last month's rent.

The rent payment process is designed to be smooth and seamless.
- For active-duty service members, if the BAH does not appear on the LES or if the allotment is not collected, the service member should contact the Reece Crossings Office immediately.
- If the rent money is not taken out by allotment, the service member will be responsible for paying rent in certified funds until the problem is corrected.
