April’s #MilChat offered by Stop Fraud Colorado – Retirement & Investing

We’re only a week away from the April 2018 edition of #MilChat!  If you haven’t already, mark your calendars for Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 1pm.  Some of the questions we’ll be discussing during this month’s chat focusing on Retirement & Investing for the Military Community, in celebration of Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2018) include the following:

  • How can military members and families get started on saving?
  • How do you calculate how much you’ll need for retirement?
  • What types of fraud should investors in the military be aware of?
  • What are some resources to assist military members with saving for retirement and investing to reach their financial goals?
