Empower Veterans to Improve Their Financial Well-being

Empowering Veterans
Veterans Need Help

Veterans have sacrificed so much for our country, yet many find themselves facing significant financial challenges upon returning to civilian life. Despite their service and dedication, they often encounter hurdles such as unemployment, underemployment, and inadequate access to financial resources. At Moore Financial Services, we want to do our part to help them as they transition back into civilian life.

My dear daddy was a Veteran, and he lived many years after leaving the armed forces. His path was one of raising a family and entrepreneurship. Not every Veteran will choose that route. Here, we explore why they are left to “hang out and dry” and present seven impactful ways to assist them in improving their financial lives.

The Financial Struggles of Veterans

Veterans often face unique financial difficulties due to various factors:

  1. Employment Challenges: Many veterans struggle to translate their military skills into civilian job opportunities, leading to higher unemployment rates.
  2. Mental and Physical Health Issues: Physical injuries and mental health issues like PTSD can significantly impact their ability to work and manage finances effectively.
  3. Lack of Financial Literacy: The transition from military to civilian life can expose gaps in financial knowledge, making it difficult to navigate savings, investments, and debt management.
  4. Limited Access to Resources: Veterans may not be aware of or have access to the financial assistance programs available to them.

Seven Ways to Assist Veterans in Improving Their Financial Lives

  1. Tailored Financial Education Programs Developing financial literacy programs specifically designed for veterans can help them understand and manage their finances better. These programs can cover budgeting, saving, investing, and managing debt, providing them with the knowledge needed to make informed financial decisions.
  2. Employment Support and Career Counseling Providing career counseling and job placement services can significantly improve their employment prospects. Tailored support can help them translate military skills into civilian job roles and prepare for interviews, resumes, and career advancement.
  3. Access to Mental Health and Medical Support Ensuring they have access to comprehensive mental health and medical care is crucial. Addressing physical and mental health issues can improve their overall well-being and ability to manage their financial responsibilities effectively.
  4. Housing Assistance Programs Affordable housing programs and housing assistance can help them find stable living conditions, reducing the financial strain of high rent or mortgage payments. Support with home buying through VA loans can also be beneficial. Some Veterans who received disability benefits may also be eligible for Section 8.
  5. Debt Relief and Credit Repair Services Many carry significant debt from medical bills, credit cards, or other loans. Offering debt relief programs and credit repair services can help them regain control over their finances and improve their credit scores. For Veterans who are looking to enhance their lives through business ownership, Moore Financial Services, has several resources available for Veterans who need their credit repaired.
  6. Entrepreneurship Support Encouragement and support in starting their own businesses can provide them with a sense of purpose and a viable income stream. Business training programs, grants, and mentorship can be instrumental in helping veteran entrepreneurs succeed.
  7. Peer Support Networks Establishing peer support networks can create a community for sharing experiences, advice, and support. These networks can provide emotional and practical support, making the financial journey less isolating and more manageable. Great ways to connect are on apps such as Nextdoor.


Veterans have sacrificed so much, and kindness can be shown towards them in many ways. By implementing these strategies, we can help veterans overcome financial challenges and achieve a stable and prosperous future. At Moore Financial Services, we are committed to assisting veterans by ensuring they have the resources and support they need to thrive in civilian life through business ownership.

Together, let’s make a difference in the lives of those who have bravely served our nation.
