I heard there is a special savings account for military members when they are deployed. Am I eligible for that?

The Military Savings Deposit Program (SDP) pays 10 percent interest while you are deployed in an SDP-eligible combat zone (you must be receiving Hostile Fire Pay). You can start your SDP account once you’ve been deployed for a minimum of 30 consecutive days or at least one day in each of three consecutive months. Any military finance office in theater can help you set up an account and the deposit method most convenient for you.
