Thank you for your interest in MILITARY MONEY. We are dedicated to serving the nation’s military community with financial news, tools and resources.
The following guidelines should assist you in presenting article ideas for editorial consideration.
We are interested in informative yet entertaining perspectives about personal finance or lifestyle issues that will entice military families to improve their personal finances, become more informed consumers and meet long term saving and investment goals. Military families must cope with many of the same problems faced by their civilian counterparts, in addition to their own unique challenges.
We welcome articles from professional writers, but the ability to write clearly and concisely and convey useful financial knowledge is more important than credentials. We especially invite contributions from military members and families.
We prefer original material, but will consider reprints. Do not propose fiction, poetry, or fillers.
Though many articles and queries have merit, we can only publish work that meets our editorial needs.
