Video helps military families navigate banking and finance options

Pioneer Services' Latest Video Podcast on the Banking and Finance Industry Helps Military Families Better Understand Their Options.

The banking and finance industry plays a vital role in the lives of most Americans yet many people, including military families, don’t fully understand their financial opportunities. This is especially true for those who have never accessed traditional banking options due to financial constraints, lack of credit history, or a highly mobile lifestyle. According to the FDIC, many military families fall into this "underserved" category, which unfortunately limits their finance and lending options.

To help explain those options to military families Pioneer Services, the military division of MidCountry Bank, has created a new video podcast on the topic. The video also outlines what military families may want to consider when choosing a lender.

"We've been working with military families for nearly three decades and have a unique understanding of the military lifestyle," said Joe Freeman, President of Pioneer Services. "This experience has given us insight into the banking and finance opportunities available to military families, and what they should look for when choosing a lender. The goal is to educate those who might not be familiar with or have limited prior experience regarding more mainstream banking and finance solutions."
