The Personal Financial Counselor (PFC) Program provides financial readiness support directly to Military Service members and their families. PFCs support total force readiness by equipping Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines with the tools, education and counseling to achieve financial well-being through the setting and attainment of personal financial goals, which in turn increases force readiness by satisfying a core aspect of holistic troop welfare.
Personal financial counselors are highly trained professionals who understand the military lifestyle. They hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree or have a combination of education and experience that equips the individual to serve as a financial counselor, and national financial certification (accredited financial counselor, or AFC®; chartered financial consultant, or ChFC®; or certified financial planner, or CFP®).
