    Is this the career status bonus they get at a certain number of years? Or an enlistment bonus?

    I’m delighted to hear that you are planning ahead for your financial future. Investing the starter loan is an excellent idea assuming you have the majority of your debts covered. If you want to look into short term investments to provide a financial safety net for life’s little emergencies, look toward Money Market Mutual Funds. They provide safety against loss and also a highly competitive interest rate. You can also access the funds in a time of need. After that, I recommend placing funds aside for planned large purchases in the future – things like down payments on a future home come to mind. Then take a moment to dream into the future when you will be retiring.

    If you can qualify for a Roth IRA (which I’m fairly certain you can), consider an investment in your retirement. Check out some options if you wish at usaa.com under the investments tab and take advantage of the free advice from financial advisors on the phone. Do some planning to make certain you can pay back the loan when it comes due, but with his pay increases and sticking to the budget, this should not be a problem. Keep up the good financial management and congratulations on starting a terrific career!
