Pioneer Services supports ICFE work to help military families reach financial goals  

Written by Pioneer Services/Institute for Consumer Financial Education

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (June 20, 2005) For the second year in a row, Pioneer Services and the Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE) have announced Pioneer Services' renewed corporate sponsorship focusing on financial education and support for legislation beneficial to military families. The ICFE is an official partner with the Department of Defense and its Financial Readiness Campaign, and Pioneer Services supports ICFE measures that will help increase operational readiness and improve the quality of life for service members and their families.

"Both of our organizations are dedicated to helping military families, said Randy McKee, president and senior Pioneer Services Representative, "and together we can teach service members and their families how to better accumulate and manage money. Our experience with the military community, combined with the ICFE's outstanding financial educational offerings, means better service for the men and women who serve our country.

"Financial education is especially critical for the military community, said Paul S. Richard, Registered Financial Consultant (RFC) and executive director of the ICFE. "Delivery will require strong efforts from not-for-profit organizations like ICFE and is enhanced by the support of companies like Pioneer Services.

Each Pioneer Services office manager has been enrolled in an educational program on the new Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions (FACTA). All have been certified by the ICFE as a Certified Credit Report Reviewer (CCRR). Those who earn the CCRR designation help customers understand their credit reports as well as assist those who have been victims of identity theft. These two services are offered for free at every Pioneer Services office.

The ICFE is a non-profit organization, founded in 1982, that is dedicated to helping people of all ages improve their spending, increase their savings and use credit more wisely. ICFE helps educate, motivate and empower Americans, through classroom and internet-based educational programs, to put more of their discretionary dollars aside in investments for their future, refrain from over-spending, and to keep more of the money they make and do more with the money they keep.

The sponsorship of the ICFE is another way that Pioneer Services Representatives seek to enhance their quality-of-life and financial independence for military families. They have more than 70 years in the financial industry and serve the military community through 26 office locations and online services. In addition to financial education programs, loans, and insurance products, Pioneer Services Representatives support military families and communities through a variety of partnerships, programs, and sponsorships.
