Taking Care of Your Money

Becoming a part of your Guard member’s military life can bring financial gain, as

well as potential financial stress. Enjoy the extra money, but be wise with spending

and saving. The military has created several programs to assist families and Guard

members to strive for a safe and secure financial environment. As you and your Guard

member discuss your finances, keep these tips in mind:

  • Keep a joint checking or savings account with direct deposit that your spouse maintains.
  • Consider separate checking accounts to avoid an overdraft if you both are drawing

    from the same account.

  • Ensure that your pay allotment covers all necessary household expenses.
  • Establish a deployment budget.
  • Visit

    Military Saves

    for additional guidance and assistance.

  • If you have difficulties, contact your local Family Assistance Office or

    Military OneSource

    or 1-800-342-9647.

  • Contact the rear detachment commander if there are any problems with pay.
