About This Webinar:

Frequent moves and deployments can create unique challenges for a military spouse’s career progression and income, impacting the family’s financial resilience. However, military spouses have access to education and career guidance, comprehensive resources, and tools worldwide to assist them in overcoming these challenges. In this interactive webinar, C. Eddy Mentzer from The Department of Defense Spouse Education and Career Opportunities (SECO) program shows Personal Financial Managers (PFMs) available options and best practices for engaging military families on these services, while taking time to answer questions from service providers.
