Military Debt Help for Military Service Members and Families
InCharge Debt Solutions recognizes that service members from all branches of the US military face the same financial challenges confronting many Americans, greatly compounded by the nature of military service where “mobility” is a reality of life. InCharge is a leading nonprofit organization which has brought debt relief to over a million struggling Americans, and we’ve developed tools and alliances to bring specialized help to military families struggling with debt overload and the unique challenges of military life.
As a way of honoring military service and showing appreciation for the sacrifice of military families, InCharge offers these tailored resources:
- Free articles, tools and resources are available through InCharge’s MilitaryMoney.com website, including the daily tips-oriented podcast Military Money Minute. The MilitaryMoney website earned Top Ten Status in Kiplinger’s “Personal Finance Guide for Military Families, 2009.”
