Who We Are
Military Money was created in 2003 as part of the Department of Defense's "Financial Readiness Campaign" with the support of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy.
Over the past 20 years, Military Money has been an important presence in the lives of servicemembers and veterans. Military Money Magazine had a circulation of 300,000 and was distributed to US Military bases globally before we officially went online. Our podcasts, Military Money Minutes, can be heard on Armed Forces Radio. And our flagship website, MilitaryMoney.com serves up the highest quality in journalism for our armed forces, past, present and future.
Why We Do It
A Nonprofit Here to Help
The lifestyle of the military family can prove both challenging and rewarding – especially to the family finances. Saving, investing and budgeting on a military income can require special considerations, skills and planning.
Frequent moves, career changes for the spouse, new schools for the kids... Let's face it: Simply raising a family within the ranks of the military can pose unique obstacles.
Military Money exists to serve as an engaging financial resource for families with loved ones serving in America's armed forces.
