Financial Tips For New Veterans


Share this:

MINT HILL, NC – It’s almost Veterans Day. If you’ve just become a veteran, or will be one soon, you can be proud of your service. But as you leave the structure of the military, you may need to take greater control over some financial aspects of your life.

For starters, you may now be considering purchasing a home. A VA loan could be appropriate, but don’t take out a mortgage so big that you become “house poor.”

And don’t forget about insurance. You may get health coverage through TRICARE and the Veterans Administration, but you may still want to take advantage of your employer’s plan. And investigate your options for life insurance as well.

One note of caution: Watch out for financial scammers who target veterans with phony offers.

Entering a new phase in your life can be rewarding – and you will enjoy it even more when you get comfortable with your new financial arrangements.
