JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. --

Members of the 108th Wing are required to recertify their Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and submit a signed AF Form 594 to the finance office by Sept. 17, 2020. Those who fail to submit the required form are at risk of having their future BAH adjusted to a lower rate.

For easy submission, finance will accept documents with valid digital signatures by e-mail sent to the customer service mailbox, or in bulk, by designated unit commander support staff members upon coordination from Master Sgt. Jeffrey McGrath, the finance point of contact. When digitally signing, do not lock the form, ensuring there are other fillable fields, so finance can certify it.

Forms with a wet signature can either be handed in person at the finance office or emailed. The finance manager is also available to come to collect forms, in bulk, Sept. 11-13 during the drill weekend. Pick-up times are to be coordinated between fincance and the unit's commander support staff.

For any additional questions, please contact McGrath using the finance customer service mailbox: Usaf.nj.108-wg.mbx.wg-fm-customer-service@mail.mil
