New Military Saves Week Video: Set a goal, Make a plan, Save automatically!

Just in time for Military Saves Week 2018, which is Feb. 26-March 2, a new video is encouraging service members and their families to focus on their savings and financial readiness.

The video, generously produced by USAA Educational Foundation, illustrates the need for military families to set a goal, make a plan and save automatically during Military Saves Week, and throughout the year!

Military Saves Week is an annual opportunity for installations and organizations around the world to promote good savings behavior and a chance for service members and their families to assess their own saving status.

It's not too late for your organization to sign up to participate in the week and encourage others to save. When you sign up, you'll have access to social media posts, graphics and articles that you can use to spread the word about savings. 

Service members and their families are encouraged to take the Military Saves Pledge to save money, reduce debt and build wealth. Military Saves helps them stay motivated to save with information, advice, tips, and reminders to reach their savings goals.

TAKE THE PLEDGE

I came into the Air Force at 23 years old in 1993 with about 12 outstanding bills (hospital bills, car loan, car insurance, school loans, credit cards, etc.). You name it, I had the bill. Thanks to the Family Support Center, Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, and many other sources, I now have no outstanding bills.
