FINRA Foundation Releases Military Financial Capability Survey

 

The Military Survey is one of two linked surveys that constitute the 2012 National Financial Capability Study (NFCS). It provides insightful information on how military families manage their financial resources and make financial decisions. Results reveal that most military respondents are taking control of their finances. Three quarters have a retirement account, nearly 80 percent are living within their means and many have participated in financial education offered by the military.

 

Results of the State-by-State Survey were released earlier this year. The 2012 NFCS was developed in consultation with the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and other federal agencies.
