BBB Shares Money Tips for Military Families

In Honor of Military Saves Week, BBB Shares Money Tips and Financial Resources to Protect Military Families and Help Them Plan Their Future

Better Business Bureau (BBB) joins Military Saves for “Military Saves Week”, February 25 through March 2. Throughout the week BBB’s Military Line will offer education and information meant to motivate, support and encourage service members, military families, and veterans to save money, reduce debt and build wealth. BBB believes supporting financial readiness helps protect military consumers and their families.

Why does it matter? According to BBB Scam Tracker, service members, veterans and their families are more likely to be targeted for scams and lose 27 percent more money than the average consumer. Complaints by military consumers have risen by 30 percent and more than three out of four service members have financial worries. They are also two to three times more likely to exhibit unhealthy financial behaviors.

Organized by Military Saves, a partner in the Department of Defense’s Financial Readiness Campaign, BBB and thousands of organizations are encouraging the community to take the Military Saves pledge. The pledge is a commitment to exercise good financial habits, improve financial readiness and encourage other Americans to do the same.

Below are steps BBB recommends for military personnel and their families to help them achieve financial security:

Create a plan. Create a budget or spending plan for monthly expenses and plan to save for rent, utilities, and groceries.  By including savings in a monthly budget military consumer’s are committing to paying a very important person…him or herself.

Set a savings goal. People save more when they have a goal in mind. Whether it is saving for retirement, an emergency or a child’s college education, one should keep a savings goal in mind.

Use a savings checklist. America Saves offers a free savings checklist to help track progress at bit.ly/savingschecklist.

Save automatically. Contribute to the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) and have a portion of every paycheck transferred into a retirement account, prior to being paid. Military members can set up allotments through an online myPay account and designate a specific amount to a separate account from basic checking – preferably a savings account. 

Extra Tip: Tax time is a great opportunity to save for those who receive a refund. Visit SaveYourRefund to learn how saving at least $50 of your tax refund could win ones $25,000 in 2019!

Supporting Military Saves Week, BBB’s Military Line reminds military communities of free resources available through BBB’s across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Scam Awareness and Prevention Education – BBB teaches financial readiness classes at various military installations and veteran-resource centers.

Military Community Outreach – BBB attends and supports community fairs, conferences, and events, connecting with service members and veterans.

Data Collection – Via BBB Scam Tracker, BBB analyzes data received to help identify threats and the needs of our military community in the marketplace.

Complaint and Dispute Resolution – BBB helps military consumers resolve disputes by taking complaints at bbb.org/complaints and sharing issues affecting the military community at large.

New Year’s Resolution? BBB Warns About Gym Membership Scams

Every year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions hoping to spark positive change. One of the top annual themes is a more active approach to health/fitness and January has a surge in gym activity – 50 percent more than December – with many people embarking on
weight-loss resolutions in the new year.

Consumers report high-pressure sales tactics, misrepresentations about facilities and services, broken cancellation policies and lost membership fees when gyms go out of business.

Better Business Bureau shares the following tips to avoid becoming a victim of fitness scams.

  • Determine fitness goals. Making goals in advance can help a person select an appropriate facility. It’s also a good idea to check with a physician before embarking on a new fitness regimen, especially if medical conditions are present.

  • What is most important? Will a convenient location and extended hours be beneficial in reaching a fitness goal? Will a variety of equipment or classes keep people motivated? Work out while traveling and prefer a chain with numerous locations? Identify top priorities before shopping around.

  • Check bbb.org. BBB has business profiles on more than 15,000 health clubs, fitness centers and gyms nationwide and 231 are located in the Pacific Southwest region. Read what current and/or previous customers have to say and see how the business responds to complaints. This information may help narrow down the list of gyms selected to visit.

  • Take a tour. Does the gym have the equipment, classes and trainers needed, clean showers and available Wi-Fi? Ask questions and make sure to understand all the rules. What are the busy times, wait times for equipment, class registration requirements, availability and find out if there is an additional cost for personal training.

  • Ask about free trials. Fitness centers often offer a 2, 3 of even 6 free pass for potential members providing customers a great way to see if the gym is a good fit.

  • Do not feel coerced. Don’t give in to high-pressure sales tactics and join right away. A reputable gym will give consumers time to read the contract, tour the facility and help them make an informed decision.

  • Calculate the true costs. Gyms often use special introductory offers to encourage new members, but the price could go up once the initial period is over. Know and understand what the regular monthly fees will be and what they include.

  • Understand all terms. Read the contract carefully before signing. Make sure all verbal promises are in writing. The document one signs is what matters, so don’t take a salesperson’s word for it. What happens if a member moves or the gym goes out of business? Will the membership renew automatically? Can one cancel the contract and, if so, under what circumstances?

  • Certified trainers. Research certifications any personal trainer claims to have. When paying more on top of the gym membership, make sure the trainer is qualified with appropriate certification.

  • Never use a debit card. Be aware when using a debit card, this give the fitness center direct access to one’s bank account and money. Instead use a credit card. Credit cards serve as a barrier between your money and the people who want it and some offer benefits for purchases and even fraud protection. As a whole, credit cards offer more protection than debit cards do.

  • Get a receipt. Those who don’t like credit cards, often prefer to pay for things in cash. This includes gym memberships. There is nothing wrong with cash, but always make sure to get proof of payment – ask for a receipt.

Lake Havasu City Sailor Participates in Humanitarian Efforts…

 

The hospital ship USNS Comfort is on an 11-week medical support mission to Central and South America as part of U.S. Southern Command’s “Enduring Promise” initiative. We would like to give a shout out to one of our own who is on that mission: Hospitalman Jerusha Hainsworth, an amazing young woman.

Working with health and government partners in Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Honduras, Hainsworth is part of the embarked medical team that provides care on board and at land-based medical sites, helping to relieve pressure on national medical systems caused partly by an increase in cross-border migrants. Hainsworth is part of a deployment that reflects the United States’ enduring promise of friendship, partnership and solidarity with the Americas.

Her dad Darryl Hainsworth owns Havasu Barber Shop (next to Juicys) and is a proud papa and patriot. KNTR Talk and Radio Central thank Jerusha for her service and we look forward to welcoming you home!!

U.S. Navy Statements on Passing of Sen. John McCain

Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson and the commanding officer of USS John S. McCain (DDG 56), Cmdr. Micah Murphy, released statements Aug. 25 on the death of Senator and Navy veteran John S. McCain III who died Aug. 25 at age 81.

Statement by Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer:

“Today, the Navy and Marine Corps team lost a friend and one of our own when Senator John McCain passed.

“From the Naval Academy to flight school and throughout his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, McCain displayed unfailing honor and duty to country. If that was the end of his service, he would still be renowned as a hero, but McCain’s desire to serve didn’t stop when his uniform came off. He continued to serve as a representative and senator from Arizona. Throughout his life, McCain never ceased serving our nation or fighting for what he believed.

“My heartfelt condolences go out to the McCain family, their friends and loved ones. Everyone on the Navy and Marine Corps team shares this loss with all who had the fortune of knowing Sen. John McCain.”

Statement by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson:

“The nation has lost a great patriot and warrior. Whenever we were in a tough spot, we knew Sen. McCain would be on our side with his characteristic toughness and integrity. The U.S. Navy mourns the loss of a true shipmate. Our prayers go with him and to his family, that they find consolation. May Sen. John McCain, who never flinched from a worthy fight, rest in a well-deserved peace.”

Statement by USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) commanding officer Cmdr. Micah Murphy:

“On behalf of the crew of USS John S. McCain, I offer our support and prayers to the McCain family, our gratitude to the senator for his years of service to our nation, and a heartfelt traditional Navy sendoff: ‘Fair winds and following seas.’ It is an honor to have our mighty warship carry on your name and continue your legacy.”

DDG-56’s name honors three generations of dedicated service to the Navy and nation. Sen. McCain’s father, Adm. John S. McCain, Jr. served as U.S. Pacific Command commander. Sen. McCain’s grandfather, Adm. John S. McCain was a distinguished World War II carrier task force commander.

Sen. McCain continued this proud legacy as a naval aviator during the Vietnam War. As a prisoner of war, he endured more than five years of captivity, representing America honorably and selflessly.

After retiring from the Navy, he continued national service in Congress, first as a representative and later as a senator from Arizona. Sen. McCain took an active interest in the destroyer and its crew, including a visit to the ship during a port visit to Cam Ranh International Port in Vietnam on June 2, 2017. The ship had visited ports in Vietnam several times before over the years in honor of the McCain legacy.
