Military Money Interview of the Week
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 12, 2008
Many members of the military struggle with managing their finances, in many cases because they have limited time to spare. A provision of The Military Lending Act of 2007 was intended to deal with situations like these by offering "Refund Anticipation Loans" (RALs).
This timely topic was the focus of the January 27th edition of the "Military Money Interview of the Week" on MilitaryMoney.com, a weekly radio show that brings important financial and lifestyle information, advice and resources to our country's military and their families.
Featured in this edition of the "Military Money Interview of the Week" was Ken Treat, Senior Vice President for Field Management for H&R Block. Mr. Treat, a former Marine Corps Sergeant, discussed his company's RAL product designed to help military service members get cash refunds more quickly at tax time.
Mr. Treat was interviewed by Mike Schiano, the show's host who also serves as Vice President of Outreach for InCharge Education Foundation, Inc. based in Orlando, Florida. MilitaryMoney.com has partnered with American Forces Radio Network to offer personal finance tips and advice to military members and their families. "Military Money Minute" is broadcast six days a week, five times a day in more than 40 countries around the world.
