Yes, it is true. This year Military Saves has added the ability to re-pledge. You can now recommit to saving by take the Military Saves Pledge again; and with Military Saves Week around the corner there's no better time.
Taking the Military Saves Pledge has always been a part of the Military Saves Campaign. Each year during Military Saves Week, the Department of Defense encourages servicemembers, their families, DoD employees and their families to take the pledge as a first step in their commitment to Build Wealth, Not Debt. In the past, individuals could only pledge to save once.
Starting with Military Saves Week 2013, individuals can pledge or re-pledge. Taking the Military Saves Pledge during Military Saves Week, February 25 – March 2, is a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status and take financial action. Studies reveal that having a savings plan with specific goals can have beneficial financial effects, regardless of income level.
Financial readiness is important to the Department of Defense and in partnership with Military Saves, www.MilitarySaves.org offers an array of savings tips, information and resources from trusted non-biased sources to help you and your family save successfully.
Take the pledge today, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
