For members of the U.S. military, traveling and re-locating often, returning home following a lengthy deployment and living with uncertainty isn’t always easy. Establishing a routine after a big life event like a re-location, deployment or completion of your military service can be challenging, and comes with many new decisions – including new or changing financial choices and obligations. As we honor those who’ve served our country this Veteran’s Day, Ameriprise financial advisors are available to talk about:
 
- How members of the military should establish or re-fresh their household budget and long-term financial plan after returning to the U.S. or relocating to a different part of the country or globe.
 
- Ways to plan for necessary big purchases or life events when returning stateside after a deployment. These may include everything from purchasing a home or vehicle to planning a wedding or to start a family.
 
- Special financial considerations for spouses of deployed service members and the importance of ensuring that they are equipped with the tools and knowledge to address financial matters while their spouse is deployed.
 
- Strategies for planning for retirement and college education (for oneself or family members) as a member of the military or a veteran.
 
- Where to find various financial and educational resources available to members of the military and veterans, and the impacts of laws and programs such as the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act and the G.I Bill.
 
- The importance of establishing a support network for active military members and veterans, their spouses and their families.
 
- Helpful tips for veterans conducting a job search in the civilian world.
