“Military Saves Month 2020 is a great opportunity for the military community to assess their savings and overall financial health. During Military Saves Month military banks located on installations all over the world are providing special incentives, products, services and financial education. Stop in and see what your military bank is doing for Military Saves Month and see how they can help you Make Saving Automatic.” – Major General Steven J. Lepper (USAF Retired) President and CEO, Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA)
Military Saves Month – April 2020
If you are a military bank and would like to share how you are participating this year with Military Saves please email Andia.Dinesen@ambahq.org.
As part of the larger nationwide America Saves Campaign, Military Saves will again be conducted in cooperation with the Consumer Federation of America. This year an entire month will be dedictated to the Campaign.
As in prior years, the Military Saves Campaign is a year-long effort for the DoD military community, and the military banks have traditionally played a key role in supporting the Campaign. The result of a successful Campaign is the enhanced financial readiness of military members and their families by reducing debt and fostering a saving culture.
AMBA and its member banks have a record of strong support for the annual Military Saves Campaign since its inception. Many AMBA member banks have developed robust programs for Military Saves Week, and we at AMBA Headquarters encourage the banks to build on past successes and make 2020 even better.
