USAA can help with that.
The Department of Defense is
feverishly hustlingbuilding a calculator that will analyze which retirement system is better for servicemember careers and finances. The calculator was supposed to be launched back in January 2017 but its run into delays. (The contractors are fixing the last few bugs.) A few of us bloggers with DoDs BRS roundtable are helping with the beta testing, and its expected to go live at the end of March.
USAA is cutting the rates on their new life insurance policies. Let me explain why in less than
1800 2000 words but its all good.
Ive learned a lot about insurance over the last 30 years, and its a necessary evil. We buy it to help ourselves (and our families) recover from disasters, and we only keep it as long as we need it.
Everyone knows a story about someone who was devastated by a personal catastrophe which destroyed their finances.

BLUF: In college I paid off $32k in student loans in a year. On a military salary I paid off a $280k mortgage in seven years. Ive bought several rental properties with cash. I did this through paying off debt, having a high savings rate, and investing well.
My name is Rich. Im an Air Force Lt Col of 16 years. Im married with 2 young kids.
Here is my message:
Dont work until youre 65. Not even 55. You can save enough money to retire in 20 years or less. I mean after 20 years of work, NEVER WORK AGAIN (unless you want to). This method doesnt depend on a military retirement, thats just a bonus!
I currently make enough money from my investments to live on. I could quit working today, but Im less than four years from a generous military retirement.
I worked for Fidelity Investments as a stock broker during college. Ive read almost every finance and real estate book out there.
Most of what Ive read is useless. Money is strikingly simple.
Im a voracious reader. I was that six-year-old kid you saw staggering out of the public library with a two-foot stack of books, and 50 years later Im still doing it. Over the first 45 years of my life I accumulated over 3000 paperbacks, which made me a fun guy to be around during military household goods moves. Hawaiis tropical climate (and critters) eventually forced me to give away that collection, and a Kindle app has restored our domestic harmony. Now Ill never run out of storage, and financial independence gives me even more time for reading.
