Motivating the Military to Save
Monday, February 25, 2019
Whether you’re brand new to Military Saves Week or a long-time partner or saver, here are three reasons why YOU should join the #MSW19 movement that’s motivating the military to save money, reduce debt and build wealth.
- It’s a designated opportunity to hit the pause button on your crazy busy military life and check in on the fitness of your personal savings. Military Saves Week (MSW) is an annual opportunity for installations and organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for service members and their families to assess their own saving status. MSW is a worldwide financial readiness celebration focused on saving.
- It’s tried and true. Since 2007, more than 300,000 (and counting) service members and their family members have taken the Military Saves Pledge, a new and improved savings tool to help you create a simple savings plan. Every year, hundreds of installations and organizations from all over the world participate in MSW by hosting events that promote savings and financial readiness.
- Military Saves is your personal savings coach. When you take the Military Saves Pledge, you’ll have access to FREE educational resources on MilitarySaves.org, as well as customized communications, including the option to receive savings-specific text message tips and reminders to help you stay on track with your savings goals.
And, yes, it’s all completely FREE. And, no, we’ll never try to sell you anything, EVER.
So, join the movement that is motivating the military to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth.
Your future self will thank you.
