The coronavirus outbreak may affect many aspects of your military life, including financial readiness. If you and your family are experiencing challenges, the Department of Defense offers a number of services to help you take control and minimize financial distress.
You don't need to tackle issues like mounting debt or saving for college or retirement alone; Military OneSource financial counselors are available in-person, over the phone and video. Financial counseling gives you an opportunity to talk to a trained professional – one who is familiar with the issues that affect service members – about your questions and receive referrals to services and programs that meet your specific needs. Rest assured, Military OneSource financial counselors will not push products or plans on you.
During Military Consumer Month, and whenever you sit down to work on your financial goals, think through how you can maximize what you earn, spend wisely, protect your assets and be a savvy borrower, saver and investor.
Your service member doesn’t have to face financial hardship alone. Free information, resources and counseling are available.
Financial security at home helps you be more focused and mission ready. To help you be your best both financially and professionally, Military OneSource offers free financial counseling to service members and their families on issues such as budgeting, money management and debt reduction.
The Department of Defense offers a number of financial counseling options for you and your family to help plan and control your financial future.
