Tips, advice, and the latest news from the savings world.
Last week Military Saves and partnering organizations, installations and financial institutions participated in Military Saves Week 2014. Military Saves Week provided the military community with incentivized savings products, workshops and events to encourage servicemembers to become military savers. Military Saves manned a table at the Pentagon Financial Readiness Fair, conducted with several of our partner organizations to encourage servicemembers and DoD civilians to take the Military Saves pledge. Through social media, we also informed military savers about incentivized financial products, financial workshops and community events that were being held specifically for servicemembers, their spouses their children.
