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

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

3580 LIFELINES AND LOCAL INFORMATION
 
The Navy
 
recognizes that moving every few years creates career challenges for military spouses, especially when stationed overseas or in remote areas.
 
Our Family Employment Readiness Program (FERP) offers family members a variety of resources to
 
tackle those challenges.
 
Workshops have been created to help you plan a
 
career, launch a job search, write the resume, learn interview techniques, find information on federal employment, conduct self 
-
assessments, set goals and even take vocational tests. FERP also offers com-puter tutorial programs to help you build technical skills.
 
The goal of FERP is to help you learn how to get a job and maintain a career you enjoy, as a military family member. Let FERP help you today.
 
If you don't live near a Fleet and Family Support Center, many services, such as coaching and resume reviews, can be done via the phone or email.
 
Military Spouse Preference Program
 
Military Spouse Preference (MSP) is a Department of Defense (DOD) program that is intended to lessen the career interruption of spouses who relocate with their military sponsors. MSP
 
offers employment placement preference in DoD civilian personnel positions to military spouses who meet the
 
eligibility requirements.
 
The program applies to DoD vacancies only. Get the facts.
 
Volunteerism
 
Volunteerism offers a great opportunity to learn new skills or enhance existing skills, gain experience in the workforce and con-tribute to the community. Many military spouses find deep satisfaction in volunteering their time. Often, paid employment is too difficult to find or simply does not suit the needs of the spouse. Volunteering provides an advantage when seeking future em-ployment while also serving the needs of the community. More information on volunteerism is available.
 
Federal Employment
 
Employment with the Federal Government
 
is an excellent option for military spouses. Family members may be eligible for non
-
 
Military spouses who meet certain criteria may be eligible for military spouse preference
 
when applying for 
 
DoD civilian personnel positions.
