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.
MFAN’s unique ability to convene key policymakers, public and private organizations, and other stakeholders dedicated to meeting the needs of military families enables us to meet those needs and create a plan of action to solve the challenges those families may face in the future. The Military Family Financial Readiness Coalition (MFFRC), convened by MFAN and made possible thanks to Wells Fargo’s generosity and commitment to supporting the military community, is a perfect example of bringing the right people to the table to move the needle on financial readiness for military families at home and overseas.
The MFFRC held its quarterly meeting on September 15, 2020. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss current issues around military family finances, what each member organization is doing to address those issues, and how coalition members can support one another in their efforts. At Tuesday’s meeting, over 40 attendees shared updates, engaged in the first of many conversations around racial equity in military family finances, and had the opportunity to hear an update from Senator Patty Murray on her efforts help secure military family financial security through updates to legislation related to the Blended Retirement System.
Here are some key highlights we think you should know about:
MFAN is grateful to all the members of the MFFRC for their efforts to support military families. We give special thanks to our presenting sponsor, Wells Fargo, for their continued support of the coalition. And we are honored that military families around the globe have trusted us to share their stories and experiences. We remain committed to research that identifies the needs and challenges of military families and to working with our coalition partners to find data-driven solutions to those needs.
