The Military Money Corner
- Here you’ll find posts and resources focused on personal finance for Canadian military (CAF) members.
- I serve as an Air Force Officer. I’m on the path to Financial Independence through frugal living and investing.
- No one taught me how the pension works, how to read pay stubs, or how military service affects the way you use the RRSP or TFSA.
- In my first posting I saw students struggle financially. Later, I found out that this is normal – most Canadian’s live paycheck to paycheck.
Posts for Military Members
I discuss how a military career can increase your ability and willingness to take on risk. With more risk comes higher expected returns.
The past 12 years in the military has helped me keep expenses at rock bottom while maintaining a high quality of life. Examples include a fully funded post-secondary education to reduced reliance on material goods.
