Educating Veterans to Succeed at Personal Finance

In 2011, Kansas State University started what many hope will be a trend in military education: an online course designed to help educate military servicemembers successfully manage their personal budgets and finances.

In every economy, managing personal finances is challenging for just about everyone. But this is especially true for members of the armed forces who face special obstacles to sound money management, including deployments all over the world.

Military Personal Financial Readiness was first designed as an online intersession class and first offered in 2011/2012 at Kansas State University.

A pilot session of the Military Personal Financial Readiness class was taught during the August 2011 intersession at Kansas State University and received positive feedback from the military members of the class.

The unique online financial course is designed to teach fiscal responsibility to those who manage the challenge of being assigned all over the world, thus making it a perfect education for pre- and post-deployment financial management.

The pilot Military Personal Financial Readiness online class was also attended by financial planners who want to help military service members and their families deal with financial issues unique to the military lifestyle.

Military Personal Financial Readiness begins with overview of the financial planning process, adapting topics to the special needs of and resources available to military service members and their families. Topics covered in detail include financial management, record keeping, risk management, savings, education planning and investment management, credit card and debt management, tax management and retirement management - all the financial issues that comprise a sound personal money management system while you're in the military, and for years afterwards.

Don't wait til you're in financial straits. Military Personal Financial Readiness and other military financial preparedness courses may be eligible for tuition assistance under your GI Bill benefits. Check the requirements and see if you qualify. There's no better time to be financially educated than right now.
