Welcome to the Financial Readiness Campaign

Through a partnership with several federal agencies and nonprofit organizations, the Department of Defense (DoD) has launched the Financial Readiness Challenge Campaign, designed to increase personal readiness by reducing the stressors related to financial problems. At the installation Commander's request, the Campaign targets active duty, Guard and Reserve and their families by co-sponsoring a customized event and outreach effort to address the unique issues faced by the local military community.

Each event is designed to help service personnel and family members make direct contact with local, state and federal subject matter experts-- financial counselors and educators. These experts will provide information and assistance on such topics as budgets and spending plans, stretching your dollars to make ends meet, credit management, debt elimination, car buying, housing loans and foreclosures, savings and investments, and financial, estate and retirement planning.

The Campaign strives to improve financial awareness and abilities, encourage an increase in savings, reduce dependency on credit, and to protect service members against predatory lending practices and assist service members in registering for transition assistance accounts Because of the DoD Campaign, some of the individual branches of Service are now using the term "financial readiness" in place of "personal financial management."
