Service members will receive educational resources and training to prepare for decisions regarding the new Blended Retirement System (BRS). Also, how to save for your future, manage debt, Investing, TSP and improve your credit score.
Money is one of the main reasons service members experience stress on the job and is also one of the top reasons why couples argue. The personal financial management staff are trained and certified Financial Management Educators who can help you and your family members (active duty, retired, DoD and NAF Civilian Personnel) through individual financial counseling sessions and through financial workshops on subjects such as basic money management, budgeting, car buying, consumer awareness, home buying, investment strategies, credit / debt management, retirement planning.
Developing strong money management skills can help you use the money you have today to live the life you want. Plus, when your ship does come in — the great job, the winning lottery ticket or the inheritance from a rich relative — you’ll know how to handle it. The Personal Financial Management Team is here to help you achieve financial success.
