July is Month of the Military Consumer. It’s a great time to remind servicemembers, veterans, and their families of the helpful tips you can find at Military.Consumer.gov. It’s your tool for financial readiness. Because when you know how to manage your money — and how to spot a rip-off — you’re more financially solid and mission-ready.

Here’s our new video where Acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen kicks off Month of the Military Consumer, with a couple of our colleagues who are veterans. We’re proud of their service.


I hope you’ll help us mark the month on social media:

Watch USA.gov’s Facebook Live event on July 18. We’ll discuss some consumer issues affecting military families: choosing a college, avoiding job-hunting pitfalls, and learning the warning signs of imposter scams.
