Get Your Finances in Order

Your finances won’t be automatically put on hold while you’re away. Once your unit is alerted to the possibility of deployment, here are some ways you can plan accordingly:

  • Have an emergency fund. It’s always wise to have 3 to 6 months’ worth of savings for sudden expenses, like vehicle repairs or plane tickets.
  • Share account details if your family will be staying stateside and consider adding a joint owner to your financial accounts. Fill out a Change of Information/Add Joint Owner form and submit your form through your online account or at any branch.
  • Explore setting up free automatic Bill Pay to ensure you don’t miss any payments.
  • Talk to one of our financial advisors. They're here to help you learn about life insurance options, designed to give you peace of mind.

Know Your Benefits & Discounts

Identify exclusive offers and discounts you can take advantage of, thanks to your service:

  • Check to see if you qualify for tax-free pay and deployment-related allowances from Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS). These benefits vary on your deployment location.
  • Get early access to military pay when you sign up for direct deposit with our free Active Duty Checking® account. Plus, receive $20 in ATM fee rebates and free military checks.
  • Explore our benefits. Navy Federal offers Active Duty members exclusive offers and benefits on our products and services.

Digital Security

We use state-of-the-art fraud prevention systems to keep your accounts safe and give you additional tools, from notifications to card freezing, to keep you in control. We can also help you with sending or receiving funds, within the U.S. territories or abroad, quickly and securely.

Protect Your Finances While You're Away 

Servicemembers can appoint a trusted individual to care for their finances while they’re deployed. We offer Power of Attorney (POA) forms that can assist with a variety of Navy Federal banking transactions to make this process easier for you.
