Financial Tips for Military Families

On Wednesday, August 20, Experian invited Military Saves to be a guest in their weekly #CreditChat, which focused on the challenges, benefits, discounts, and support available to military families.

The chat covered a range of topics that many Military Savers address: What challenges will I face? What happens if I relocate? What about deployment? What perks of being in a servicemember can I or should I take advantage of? Where can I get help?

The chat unearthed resources, tools, and advice available to current and future Military Savers. To see contributions by Military Saves, America Saves, and our chat friends’ and partners’, check out the full tweetchat at https://storify.com/Experian_US/full-recap-financial-tips-for-military-families. Highlights of the tweetchat are also available through Experian’s SlideShare presentation:
