As a servicemember or part of a military family, you face unique challenges managing your finances and personal information. For military folks, financial decisions can have long-term effects on family life, security clearance, and mission readiness. In fact, the Department of Defense has said that financial readiness is a critical part of the force’s mission readiness. That’s why the FTC created Military Consumer, a site with short, mobile-friendly tips to help you buy a car, manage your money during deployment, continue your education and more. Military Consumer also has a short guide and presentation slides for financial counselors with suggestions for using the tips when advising the military community. Visit Military.Consumer.gov.
