This one hour class with a certified financial coach from Armed Forces Services Corporation will help individuals understand financial options, which debts to pay first, what you need to know about your credit report and score, and how to live paycheck to paycheck.

What is a financial coach?

A financial coach is a trained professional who will guide you in a process that is non-judgmental and based on your goals. Financial coaches provide support, encouragement, accountability, and tools to help you make informed decisions. A financial coach can help you plan and take steps to reduce or eliminate debt, build credit, pay bills on time, save money for life events, or transition from military to civilian life.

You can also learn more about the in-depth financial coach program offered on-site, which is:

  • One-on-one: your coach will work with you, one-on-one, to help you identify your financial goals, create a plan, and track your progress.
  • Personalized: the coaching relationship starts with you. Your financial coach will meet you wherever you are on your financial journey.
  • No cost to you: the financial coaching services are offered at no cost to you and with no strings attached.
