You're probably careful with your money. But if you're like most people, you may not be aware of the best ways to save, budget and plan for your financial future. For-tunately, each service has a Personal Financial Management program that can help you keep your finances in good shape, save for the future, improve your credit and resolve financial problems. Although financial planning services can be very expen-sive in the civilian world, the financial services offered at installation family centers, Military OneSource and the Military and Family Life Counselors program are availa- ble at no cost to service members and their families.
Although they vary by service branch, PFM programs include classes, seminars, one
one counseling and additional information to educate service members and their families about consumer rights and help them achieve financial stability.
Service members and their families are invited to attend classes and seminars about a variety of financial topics. These classes can help service members and their families make sound financial decisions by educating them about good financial practices, helping them to recognize and avoid financial traps, and teaching them their rights and obligations as consumers. Special classes for youth and teens are also offered to help them make better financial decisions.
Training programs may be mandatory for service members who are at high risk for financial problems, those scheduled for their first permanent change of station, those preparing for deployment or those who have abused or misused check
cashing privi-leges. Topics include:
Banking and credit union services
Budgeting, goal setting, record keeping and cash management
Credit use and abuse
Consumer rights and obligations
Planning for parenthood, deployment, college or retirement
