Not too long ago, I attended a financial briefing given by Commissioner Paul Atkins of the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). The briefing was held at our local military installation, and was geared toward military members. During his briefing he gave us all several links to helpful websites, one of which, www.saveandinvest.org, is geared toward helping military members and their families save, invest, and deal with issues such as deployments and a PCS (permanent change of station for those not familiar).
The website is run by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) in conjunction and supported by the SEC. The NASD is run by a consortium of licensed brokers and is a great location to research brokers, file complaints against brokers, find investment information, information about current scams, and research mutual funds, bonds, and other investments.
Beyond just PCS and deployment information, the website www.saveandinvest.org, has a wealth of other great info including how to manage money, learn about financial products, house buying, saving for college, retirement planning, identity protection, investment alerts, and has a nice selection of tools and calculators.
Both of these websites are great resources for anyone, but www.saveandinvest.org has added value to those thousands of military members who deal with military specific issues on a regular basis. Check them out!
