Course Details

This foundational course will provide an overview of the impacts of financial readiness on military family well-being. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the financial foundations of economic security, including social and economic drivers required to reach and sustain improved quality of life among military families. Consideration will be given to the unique challenges military families face, especially across times of transition, such as joining the military, deployment, permanent change of station (PCS), and navigating major life events. Resources for assisting Service members and their families across these domains will be provided.

Estimated time to complete: 90 minutes
