Active Duty Military/ Veterans

Our Advisers- Proud to Have Served our County and Now to Serve You

Many 21st Century Financial Advisers are veterans and military family members. They have walked in your shoes and have a deep understanding of life in the military. They are skilled in teaching you specific financial strategies to support all stages of your military career.

Whether you are a young recruit or a senior officer, we are committed to being there for you. We are adept at helping young clients understand how to establish a savings plan to help them reach the goal of financial security. Whether our clients are newlyweds looking to purchase their first home, saving for kids’ college or planning for retirement, we are there.

We offer a variety of financial programs designed to help military families with their specific challenges. We are proud to note that we welcome all clients including those who have not yet had the opportunity to build their assets. We serve as your financial coach and commit to teaching you how to prepare for each phase of your life.

The Dream Towards Financial Security

We all dream of a day when we have the option to do whatever we want and enjoy time relaxing, traveling or perhaps, even starting our own business as a second act. When you work with our Advisers you create a strategy that helps you create the lifestyle you want in retirement. Your advisor will explain tax-advantaged investment options to you and help you build a plan to maximize your military retirement benefits. We will meet with you regularly, track your progress and make course corrections as necessary.

Navigating Changes

We understand the importance of remaining current about changes affecting military families such as new developments in the military retirement system. Changes in the military Blended Retirement System are complex and may incur more risk that former systems. Accordingly, we are ready to equip military families with current information to make informed financial decisions.

Penn Mutual's Commitment to Veterans

The transition from the military to civilian life can be challenging. But veterans and active-duty servicemen and women have an intelligence, entrepreneurial spirit, sense of purpose, and capacity for collaboration and teamwork that make them assets in any industry. And we know from experience that they are uniquely equipped to be leaders in financial services.

That's why, in partnership with The American College, Penn Mutual sponsored the The American College Center for Veterans Affairs — an organization that provides educational support and career opportunities for men and women who have honorably served in the Armed Forces. Since its founding, both Penn Mutual and The American College have provided over 450 full scholarships to veterans and their spouses, and created a $5 million fund for the service members of today to return home to opportunity. 

Connecting leaders with opportunity

As of 2017, there were more than 370,000 unemployed veterans in the United States. Many men and women return home with a distinguished record of leadership, sacrifice, and service, but without the necessary education or training to find employment in a rewarding field like financial services. The American College Penn Mutual Center for Veterans Affairs was created in 2012 to narrow this skill gap, and provide scholarships for education in financial services to service members and their spouses. In partnership with The American College, we've since provided over $2.5 million in scholarship funds to these heroes, and helped create a new generation of leaders in life insurance

Military service is a powerful preparation for life, and a career in life insurance.

It's a belief we invest in. Even after their graduation, the center connects scholarship recipients with industry mentors and job placement resources to support their growth.

Veterans have made rich contributions to our profession. Some have moved into leadership positions in organizations like ours. Others have developed thriving practices that benefit their clients and their families, through their dedication, persistence, and loyalty.
