Start a Rainy Day Fund. Set aside at least one month of your current salary (and work your way up to three months) in a federally insured savings account. This will give you a cushion to handle medical bills, a short job loss, a surprise car repair or other financial emergency - and help keep your finances under control.
April is the Month of the Military Child. To help recognize military youth, Indiana Operation: Military Kids is celebrating Purple Up! Day on April 13th. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue.
So, help spread the word about Purple Up! Day so we can show how much we support our Indiana Military Youth. For more information on the Month of the Military Child, click here.
