Mark your calendars for our upcoming OneOp Military Caregiving professional development webinar on Financial Planning for Military Caregivers.

Event Location: Financial Planning for Military Caregivers

Worries about finances may be a source of great stress for caregivers and their families. For military family caregivers, finances may have a big impact on their ability to manage day-to-day and, eventually, retire. As the holidays approach we begin to take an especially hard look at our budget and financial responsibilities and challenges.  In this webinar military helping professionals will learn about practical resources to help caregivers better manage their finances, ensuring  families and service members live more comfortably while planning for the future.

Our presenter for this webinar is Nancy Granovsky, a professor and extension family economics specialist for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. We are honored to have her present on the topic of Financial Planning for Military Caregivers.

Registration is required to join the webinar, but can be completed on the day of the event. Also, we will be offering Certificates of Completion for those that may be interested in receiving training hours for attending the event.
