Welcome to the USA Cares Military Family Financial Education and Empowerment Program!
We are so pleased to be able to offer you this course on behalf of our partners at the Foundation for
Financial Planning and Abound Credit Union. This course is designed to give you a better understanding of
your personal finances. Upon completion of the course, your caseworker will be able to proceed with your
case to provide you the grant assistance you are currently seeking. The objectives of this course are to:
- Understanding Financial Planning
- Avoiding common money mistakes and hassles
- Understanding your rights as a service member
- Understanding why your credit score is important
The course should give you an overview and take approximately 30 minutes to complete. There is a short
exam at the end of the course that you must complete in order to receive your Certificate of Completion.
The materials that are available for this course are accessible and downloadable for 1 year. We hope that
you take some time to review this important information.
In addition to the course, we are offering two other great benefits; the first is your very own Financial
Planning Starter Kit, which includes downloadable budget forms and information. The second item is
free access to financial planning education training tools from our partners at Abound Credit Union.
