Webinar: Everything But The Kitchen SinkMay 09, 2022
The research and feedback we receive through our Advisory Board and military-connected families like yours are at the heart of everything we do at MFAN. We continually hear from families that finances remain an area of concern, and we are committed to connecting you with resources that will help you navigate current challenges and plan for a successful financial future.
In our most recent webinar, “Everything but the kitchen sink: Hacks for your financial future,” MFAN and a few of our best-in-class partners came together to talk all things financial readiness – from protecting your rights by using the SCRA, using banking resources to save for your future, and knowing where to go when you need help getting through a financial emergency.
