Military leaders, recruiters, and PFMs

MiMM is a powerful tool that was created to help military leaders, recruiters and Professional Financial Managers (PFM’s) educate, advise and train servicemembers on critical financial decisions. 

In 2016, Congress amended the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) (Sec 992) to require financial literacy training for servicemembers at several professional and personal life events, or “touchpoints.” 

This training is intended to prepare servicemembers and their families to respond to the financial circumstances of these life events, whether those are the financial implications of getting married, managing finances during deployment, or experiencing a permanent change of station. 

Up to 8,000 servicemembers a year are being discharged due to financial problems, taking a toll on those military families, the affected units are costing the government an estimated $450 million/year to replace them.
