Watch the Military Saves Week 2019 Video

Just in time for Military Saves Week 2019, this 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

A Plan for Success

Written by Super User | April 26, 2012

I’m Staff Sergeant Robert Zuniga and I have been an active duty Air Force medic for eight years. I plan on staying in long enough so that I can retire at 20 years. I have always been interested in personal finance and would like to share how it IS possible for me and my stay-at-home wife and two kids to not only save and invest a ton of money but also have a lot of responsible fun as well on 'low' enlisted pay. You CAN do it too!

First off, we write down our goals and separate wants from needs.
