A general presentation can be part of All-Hands Training, Pre-Deployment meeting with Spouses, or other gatherings where a significant population of Coast Guard members and/or their families can be reached.
In addition, senior staff, Representatives, and Assistant Representatives are welcome to have a separate Q&A session to discuss case management, CGMA policy and any concerns they might have.
The presentation covers:
Who is eligible for assistance and for what reasons assistance is given
How to apply and why a budget form is needed
The Quick Loan program and avoidance of payday lenders
The importance of taking advantage of free financial counseling
Supplemental Education Grants (SEG)
Student Loan Fee Reimbursement
Baby Layette Programs
Introductin to CGMA's Facebook Page
CGMA website orientation (where to find more information and forms)
There are many locations where our clients and their families do not know who CGMA is or how we can help. Other members know their Mutual Assistance contacts, but are too embarrassed to ask for assistance or may fear negative consequences.
Additionally, many might not realize that by being proactive about getting help with their finances now, they decrease the chance of being in a greater bind later on down the road. CGMA wants to address these issues.
Points of Contact
Please contact CGMA-HQ if you are interested in scheduling CGMA to address your crew and/or supervisors.
