    Default Army & Finances...(who can point me in the right direction)

    Alright guys heres the deal, I'm trying to get my finances in order and its such a headache! As a private E-2 im trying to sort things out so it just becomes automatic and I dont have to worry about my bills Where can I go so that somebody can sit down with me, pull up my credit report and help me organize it so I can pay things off! Im already in the process of doing some but its so complicated I dont even know who im paying anymore! I want to control it before it gets out of hand..

    I know such a service exists but I dont know where to go.

    Thanks in advance!

    Your local Army Community Services Office has counselors that can help. You can also go to militaryonesource.com - but they'll probably steer you to your local ACS.

    You can pull your own credit report free or by paying a small fee

    Credit Report and Credit History | Free Credit Report
    https://int.annualcreditreport.com/c...42330148035632

    Also, some of your own financial institutions can help you with an investment plan. e.g. usaa, navyfed.org

    But grunt hit it on the nail.

    Soldier, you need to talk to your first line supervisor, if he knows about finances he can set you straight, if he doesnt then he would recommend for you to go to Army Community Services and talk to a financial advisor (free)...if you go to ACS on your own I would still recommend bringing this to your first line supervisor to provide an opportunity for him to at least be involved and help you.
