Report title: Survey of Financial Management Behaviors of Military Personnel

Agency form number: FR 1375

OMB control number: OMB No. 7100-0307

Frequency: Semi-annually

Reporters: Two groups of military personnel: (1) those completing a financial education course as part of their advanced training and (2) those not completing a financial education course.

Annual reporting hours: 2,640

Estimated average hours per response: 20 minutes

Number of respondents: 4,000

General description of report: This information collection is voluntary. The statutory basis for collecting this information is section 2A of the Federal Reserve Act [12 U.S.C. § 225a]; the Bank Merger Act [12 U.S.C. § 1828(c)]; and sections 3 and 4 of the Bank Holding Company Act [12 U.S.C. §§ 1842 and 1843 and 12 U.S.C. §§ 353 and 461]. No issue of confidentiality normally arises because names and any other characteristics that would permit personal identification of respondents will not be reported to the Board.

Abstract: This survey will gather data from two groups of military personnel: (1) those completing a financial education course as part of their advanced training and (2) those not completing a financial education course. These two groups will be surveyed on their financial management behaviors and changes in their financial situations over time. Data from the survey will help to determine the effectiveness of financial education for young adults in the military and the durability of the effects as measured by financial status of those receiving financial education early in their military careers.
