Military Saves Week

Military Saves Week is a perfect opportunity for servicemembers and their families to take a look at their financial health and find ways to increase their savings and build wealth. 

As a supporter of Military Saves Week, NCUA encourages all those who serve our country to begin the process of improving their own financial futures by setting clear and obtainable savings goals.

  • Offering savings products with special rates or incentives
  • Hosting free financial education seminars on savings
  • Providing free financial counseling services
  • Offering incentives to make a deposit into a savings account
  • Promoting emergency savings accounts or club accounts for saving
