Financial Field Manual: A Resource for Military Families

Members of the armed services can be deployed on short notice, leaving little time to address their personal or business affairs. Insurance coverage is often affected when someone moves out of state or spends an extended period of time away from home. Upon retirement and reenlistment, members of the military are often targets for securities fraud and salespeople pushing high-priced, inappropriate investments.
 
Protect yourself and your family by taking a few moments to read the Financial Field Manual, a special publication from the Commissioner's office in partnership with the Investor Protection Trust. The Financial Field Manual provides valuable tips for saving money, investing wisely, and accessing the wide range of financial benefits offered to servicemen and women.
