Military Saves Month – April 2022

As part of the larger nationwide America Saves Campaign, Military Saves will again be conducted in cooperation with the Consumer Federation of America.  As with last year, an entire month will be dedicated to Military Saves in 2022.

Military Saves Month is a widely recognized national campaign where thousands of organizations join together to collectively encourage the military community to focus on their individual financial wellness. Over the course of a month, Military Saves will cover money-related topics from a relatable, down-to-earth, positive perspective. Savers end the month with tools, resources, and clarity on their current financial situation, new savings goals, and a realistic plan to achieve them.

Weekly Themes

Week 1: Saving Automatically
Week 2: Save For The Unexpected
Week 3: Save For Retirement
Week 4: Save By Reducing Debt 
Week 5: Save as a Family

The Military Saves Pledge is the central tool that allows Savers to set a goal and make a plan to achieve better financial stability. Take the Pledge below!
