Understanding of the personal financial readiness challenges faced by individuals and families, and the impacts on their health, family relations, and productivity, is critical to addressing financial well-being.
Our military-focused Personal Financial Counselor (PFC) network, serving in all U.S. states and territories and multiple foreign countries, enhances the quality of life for military members and their families and the Total Readiness of military commands.
Zeiders has supported Department of Defense personal financial readiness programs for over three decades as a trusted contractor partner. We recognize the unique financial challenges and stressors typical to the military lifestyle and tailor our effective financial counseling and education services to clients with sensitivity, compassion, and respect for Service members and their families.
We deliver tailored support worldwide with a highly qualified, responsive, and credentialed staff of Personal Financial Counselors.
Among the long list of credentials and designations our professionals hold, all PFCs are credentialed as either an AFC®, ChFC®, or CFP®. Many of our PFCs are military affiliated and bring their vast life experiences to bear in helping clients see the big picture of their financial situation.
Our Personal Financial Counselors assist individuals and families with managing finances, resolving financial problems, and reaching long-term goals.
We bring expertise with face-to-face counseling, individual and group coaching, and classroom style presentations. Phone-based counseling and secure video teleconferencing are offered as an adjunct to face-to-face counseling.
Zeiders’ professionally trained PFC network provides fast-response services dealing with crisis and natural disasters. Services are scalable for maximum effectiveness and offered by staff with an understanding and sensitivity to the impacted communities.
Curriculum design, communications, and social media messaging bring relevant industry thought leadership to our customers.
Supporting the need for education and one-on-one counseling at locations worldwide is a logistical challenge Zeiders solved by building a professional network that is unique in the industry and continues to grow.
