First Command Educational Foundation Workshops

What do you give up besides your uniform? Did you know that, when you leave active duty, you could...
• Lose up to 40% of your TSP?
• Pay almost $2,000 a month for VGLI?
• Leave tax-free disability pay on the table?
• Lose the chance to get guaranteed life insurance?

These concerns and more are addressed at the workshop conducted by First Command Educational Foundation (FCEF).  You’ll also get information on FCEF’s web-based Military Money Matters course, and how you can get an opportunity to compete for an exclusive scholarship.
