ICYMI: VBA hosts SEC and DoD for Financial Literacy Q/A

On Thursday, Apr. 11, the Veterans Benefits Administration’s social media team hosted a Twitter Q/A with the SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy and the DoD’s Office of Financial Readiness to chat Financial Literacy.

We wanted to call it “How to spend and invest your money gooder,” but since April is actually National Financial Literacy Month, we settled on “Financial Literacy Q/A.”

Since our Veterans and transitioning service members often receive five- and six-figure lump-sum benefits payouts and bonuses, we teamed up with our partners, above, to teach our social communities how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits.

While we didn’t get a chance to touch on whether or not financing 20-inch dubs was really a smart idea, our partners bestowed upon the chat a trove of ideas and resources and links to help you decide for yourself.

Here’s just a small recap of what you may have missed:
