Facebook groups can be a great way to share with people who are in a similar location, have a shared lifestyle, or facing a common challenge. Military life can fall into all three of those categories! If you’re military, either currently or in the past, you probably have the same money questions and issues as many other military folks. It’s nice to talk to people who understand the little details that make a big difference. Whether you’re figuring out what allowances you should get for a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move or the best way to budget during a deployment, hearing from people who have been there and done that can help you make the best decision for your unique financial situation.
Listed below are the most active military money Facebook groups that I know. I encourage you to join them. You can either lurk and learn or join in the conversation.
