3/29/2013 - HEIDELBERG, Germany  -- The Defense Travel Management Office is extending the deadline for the Overseas Housing Allowance Utility and Move-in expense survey for service members in Germany through April 15, 2013, due to low participation rates.  The original deadline for the survey was March 31. 

The survey is intended to validate and adjust the amount of compensation service members are receiving from OHA to live in privately leased or rented residential housing.

All service members, regardless of service affiliation, who reside in off-post housing in Germany are highly encouraged to complete the survey in order to accurately gauge the amount of OHA service members are receiving. The survey is critical for ensuring OHA rates are properly set at overseas locations, and survey results directly impact the amount of housing allowance each service member is paid.

Every year the Defense Travel Management Office conducts these types of surveys to identify how much service members have spent in the previous year for utilities and move-in expenses.

Spouses are encouraged to take the survey along with their Service member. Additionally, if the Service member is not available, spouses are authorized to take the survey.
