I am in the NJ Army National Guard. I am a full time employee in a public school district. I am single with no kids and live at home. To make it very simple can you give me any benefits and entitlements that are allowed to me? such as BAH if i am deployed, paid time off from work for example 38A:4-4. I also heard if i am deployed i dont have to pay the rent on my apartment or pay the mortgage if i owned a home?

I am sorry for this dilemma. But I do not understand your specific question. You want to know if you can stop paying rent because you are deployed??

Can you speak on the phone? This would allow me to address your concerns directly. There is a nominal ($5) additional charge. I do not time my phone calls...we can converse until you receive the information you need.
