Airman and Family Readiness Center

SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -- Team Shaw observed Military Saves Week along with the Department of Defense, Military OneSource, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and America Saves Feb. 26 - Mar 2.

The campaign, held by the 20th Force Support Squadron Airman & Family Readiness Center, was aimed at helping military service members, DOD civilians, and their families stay mission ready by improving financial fitness.

The A&FRC advises those wishing to increase household savings, decrease consumer debt, and improve financial literacy education take the following key steps to gain and maintain financial fitness and personal readiness:

1. Set a financial goal.
2. Develop a financial plan.
3. Commit to saving automatically.
4. Understand where your money is going.
5. Schedule a budget appointment with the A&FRC.

The A&FRCs dedication to improving Team Shaw’s readiness extends beyond Military Saves Week. The center offers courses on subjects ranging from retirement and investment options to couponing, as well as non-finance courses such as stress management. All Team Shaw members are welcome to attend these classes, and squadron leaders can arrange to have A&FRC personnel visit their units to teach these courses en masse.
