NAVIGATING FINANCES DURING YOUR TRANSITION FROM THE MILITARY

Military members and veterans can struggle with financial issues for a number of reasons. Managing household expenses, financial planning for deployments and planning for retirement are all part of responsible finances for service members in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and the Marine Corps. Transitioning out of the military is a particularly stressful time. Veterans may find themselves struggling to make a civilian income that will meet their family’s needs. Failing to plan for a lapse in employment and the expense of establishing a residence “off post” can set you back and result in debt. If you don’t have a financial plan, check out this step-by-step outline. Be sure to seek help from one of our links on the Navigating Finances page. You can get on a clear financial footing and succeed.
