Help for military transitioners in 2018



As you know, USBA offers affordable group life insurance to active, transitioning and retired military personnel. We also provide members with information about valuable resources that can help you as you exit military service. Here’s one transition resource that may surprise you–the USO.

USO Pathfinder is a free employment readiness program connecting veterans and their families with a network of beneficial resources. In October 2017, Boeing announced a $5 million donation to expand USO Pathfinder’s reach.

PERSONALIZED ASSISTANCE. USO Pathfinder SCOUTS work one-on-one with transitioning military personnel and spouses to develop individualized action plans for reaching personal and professional goals. If transitioning is in your future, start the New Year by connecting with a USO Pathfinder SCOUT here.

RESUME HELP. Partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, the USO offers an app-based Resume Engine. Use it to translate your highly valuable military experience into a powerful civilian resume, then connect with a network of companies hiring service members.

MENTORING. Job-seeking transitioners and their spouses can get mentoring assistance through the USO and Veterati. Sign up for a free 1-hour phone call with a successful professional who can help you make critical connections as you re-enter civilian life.

As with USO support, USBA’s group life insurance doesn’t end when you leave the military. Thousands of transitioning soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen turn to USBA to replace their SGLI life insurance for military. Remember, your SGLI ends 120 days after leaving military service. The USBA mission is to protect your loved ones for life.
