Military Saves Week, which runs from Feb. 23-28, is part of a yearlong campaign designed to focus on the financial readiness of military members and their families, according to a memorandum from the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The program is part of the Department of Defense’s Financial Readiness Campaign and seeks to motivate, support and encourage military families to save money, reduce debt and build wealth, according to a fact sheet from Military Saves.
During the campaign, individuals are urged to sign a pledge vowing to become more financially secure. To assist those signing the pledge, participants can opt in to receive a quarterly e-newsletter from Military Saves. The newsletter offers helpful hints and strategies in becoming financially secure.
To obtain a copy of the pledge as well as obtain useful resources and information concerning financial security, visit www.militarysaves.org/for-savers/savings-tools-and-resources/take-the-pledge.
