Thank You Veterans!

Happy Veterans Day HelloWallet Tips

Hello, veterans! We at HelloWallet are dedicated to supporting our nation’s veterans, and today like to provide a few tips to our IAVA members – and any of our members who have or currently serve in uniform – on how they can best use HelloWallet.

55% of American servicemembers today are married and 40% have two children. HelloWallet is a great resource for veterans and military families to manage their money and maximize their financial potential, at home or away.

Pro Tip! Be sure to fill out your Profile completely to let us know about your spouse, any children you may have, and your combined income and retirement contributions. Here, you may also add a secondary email to the account so you and your spouse can both stay up to date on your spending and financial picture wherever you are.

From active duty to civilian life, HelloWallet can help veterans and their families through the many transitions they will make. Whether you’re getting your ducks in a row before deployment or preparing for your return home, HelloWallet has tools to help you manage your financial life.

Pro Tip! Plan a budget to track spending and start saving for emergencies. We can also help you assess when to make those big-ticket purchases like homes, cars, vacations or anything else you’ve been looking forward to treating yourself or your family to with our Spending Guidance Wish List.

Prepare for the future and retire comfortably. You may be set to receive full retirement benefits or counting on your own savings, but no matter what HelloWallet will provide you with the guidance to ensure you’re living financially well.

Pro Tip! Use our new Retirement Guidance to project your total savings and monthly income in retirement, and commit to a new retirement savings plan based on our recommendations.
