Military families give their all for their country every day. Their financial needs are similar in many ways to everyone else, but they also have a unique set of circumstances and considerations that need to be taken into account. Sometimes the resources available to assist military families are scattered and it may be intimidating to know where to start. We created a list of some of the resources that can help military families manage their finances and be better prepared for the future. These resources, while certainly not a comprehensive list, are some of the best resources we found to assist the military family along their financial journey.
One of our favorite resources is a guide titled “Personal Finance for Military Families” created by Kiplinger Personal Finance and the BBB. It’s a fantastic resource that covers many of the unique life circumstances military families may face (such as deployment) and how to manage personal finances in the midst of these circumstances.
A great place to start with finding resources available for military families, veterans and active duty military is the Department of Veterans Affairs website. There is a lot of information available on the site and a comprehensive list of resources to get you started.
Some of the resources specifically geared to finances for the military family are:
