Financial Readiness

Army National Guard: Full Time National Guard Duty (FTNGD)

Benefit Fact Sheet

Summary

The Army's Financial Readiness Program (FRP) and Consumer Advocacy Services are available at every installation. Army Community Service (ACS) FRP teaches Soldiers in both classroom training & individual counseling sessions, how to save and invest their money, how to establish savings goals, debt elimination strategies, and saving for emergencies. Through partnerships with non-profit corporations, many of these tools and resources are provided online for those geographically separated from an ACS office. Contact your local installation ACS center or Family Service Center for more information.
