Financial Guidance for the Military

Feb 23

Military Saves Week is Feb. 27 through March 4, and the Texas State Securities Board continues to offer a resource-packed financial guide to help members of our military make confident, informed financial decisions.

A Salute to Smart Investing provides active military members with the knowledge and tools they need to achieve financial security, and helps them identify and avoid frauds that specifically target the military.

The "Salute"guide covers investment "basic training,"which includes budgeting, saving, and credit; the basics of saving and investing; balancing risk and reward in investing; retirement planning; and recognizing inappropriate investments.

In addition, the State Securities Board’s Military Section highlights the top resources for the military from state and federal securities regulators, the Department of Defense, consumer groups, and other programs.
