Military Saves Saver Survey

 

The Military Saves 2021 Saver Survey is now closed.
Results will be released in fall 2021.

 

Why should you take this survey?

Active duty service members, National Guard, Reserve, military spouses, veterans, DoD employees... your voice matters!

We've all had a rough year, and whether COVID-19 has positively or negatively impacted your finances, your response in this effort will help us improve our program and allow us to focus on the areas of concern in the military and veteran communities. 

In the 2019 Saver Survey, we learned that the biggest barrier (57%) the military and veteran community faced when it came to saving was unexpected expenses. This year we will focus attention on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted savings - whether good or bad - we need your help! 

The anonymous survey will only take approximately 5-7 minutes to complete, and as a way of showing our appreciation, you will be eligible to enter into our weekly drawing for a $500 cash prize!

For military spouse Martina and her husband, an E-5 in the Navy, accumulating a six-figure savings has become a reality. One might think that in order to save this much, it would take a great deal of sacrificing and forgoing a certain quality of life, but Martina and her husband would disagree. “Over the past few years (about five), we've managed to save almost $120,000 while mostly living on one income.
