BBB® Military and Veterans Initiative
We believe that “Knowledge is Power” and “Financial Readiness equals Mission Readiness.” Through our education programs, we work to bring financial literacy and scam prevention information to a most deserving segment of our population. We seek to equip those who serve, have served, and their families with the tools they need to navigate an ever-changing and often complex marketplace.
