Overview

Military Finances is essential reading for any soldier, veteran, or military family member concerned with their financial future. Members of the military often have a tough time handling their finances, whether it be while serving active duty or when returning to civilian life; and our uncertain economy and job market only magnify those issues. Many serving in the military are young, with little or no training in financial affairs, and face frequent deployments and relocations—all of which can wreak havoc on a person’s finances.

This book provides a one-stop guide to navigating the many financial questions facing today’s military in all phases of service:

  • Active duty
  • Preparing for transition or retirement
  • And post-military lives and careers

It covers general financial planning along with many specific aspects of money management vital to military members and their families, proving an indispensable and informative resource for those who fight to defend our freedoms every day, and have for generations.
