A Twitter chat is like a meeting on Twitter; it has a specific discussion topic and a scheduled start time. Using the hashtag #MilCents at the end of each tweet, MFAN will ask questions to a group of financial experts.
As the days get longer, weather gets warmer, and the school year winds down, we know that PCS season in nearing (or for some of us – already here!). We learned a lot from the PCS research we conducted last summer, and if you are PCSing this year, we’re thinking of you and wishing you a smooth move and transition to your new hometown. We encourage you to check out MilMap to learn about your new community. A few helpful hints: get the contact information for your move coordinator BEFORE you need it; document, document, document; connect with your local school liaison officer to learn what you need to know.
P.S. – budgeting really does help AND it isn’t too late to create one. Visit MilCents for an easy-to-use budgeting workbook, customized for military families.
