Florida Financial Literacy Month

May is recognized as National Military Appreciation Month, an opportunity to honor today’s military men and women, veterans and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our freedom. Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis is committed to ensuring veteran’s finances are protected with resources and information to help fight against financial fraud and debt.

The Department of Financial Services program, Financial Frontlines, provides information and resources to help active duty servicemembers, their families and veterans fight financial fraud and debt. Financial Frontlines provides valuable financial information about identity theft, credit scoring, budgeting, predatory lending and the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.
