Servicemember Testimonials

CFO Patronis encourages Florida's military servicemembers and their families to start saving today in order to build a solid financial foundation for the future. We recognize the unique challenges facing the military and encourage servicemembers and their families to work toward financial stability by planning for the future and making responsible financial decisions daily. The Department of Financial Services compiled video testimonials of servicemembers who have successfully navigated financial challenges and the techniques they used to reach their financial goals. Please view the video for information and resources to educate servicemembers about financial fraud and debt.
