  • Georgia Military Consumer Protection Guide

    The purpose of the Georgia Military Consumer Protection Guide (which we’ll call “the Guide”) is to make you more knowledgeable about the marketplace: its dangers, its benefits, and the places in between. While much of it will be relevant to civilians, it mainly focuses on active duty Servicemembers, veterans, and their families. Military families are at a shockingly high risk for scams and deceptive business practices. The Guide will teach you how to protect yourself from common scams and inform you about your rights as a consumer. This Guide will also teach you about some of the consumer benefits of being a Servicemember, such as the Basic Allowance for Housing and Tricare health insurance. It also explains special laws that protect Servicemembers, such as the Military Lending Act and certain sections of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. Finally, it covers challenges that every consumer faces, such as buying a car and creating a household budget. Content Detail
