Security Service FCU recently joined the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for its 6th annual Military Saves campaign to help military personnel alleviate debt, encourage better savings habits and establish solid financial goals.
This year, Security Service enrolled more than 2,000 military men and women throughout the month of March. Credit Union employees helped promote Military Saves by creating special displays for each branch and assisting with a variety of financial workshops.
“Military members that enrolled in the Military Saves program learn the ability to establish financial security and ways to build a better financial future,” says Mike Martinez, SSFCU senior vice president of military affairs. “Security Service is committed to serving our military members by providing them with the tools they need to garner strong money management skills that will help them achieve financial success.”
The Military Saves campaign educates military service members on how to build savings, rather than debt through a variety of financial workshops and activities. Security Service has been a forerunner in the Military Saves program since it was established by DoD in 2007.
“The dedication of our employees to this program made this year’s Military Saves campaign a wonderful success for us,” Martinez added. “Our employees were the key to helping us reach out to our military members and helping them take the first steps toward becoming better savers.”
Security Service ran the Military Saves campaign at all of its 70 branches in Texas, Colorado and Utah.
