MOAA Ramps up in Response to COVID-19

Our national offices may be closed, but the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) isn't. Our team members have been fully operational from their homes since March, continuing our commitment to "Never Stop Serving." We're maintaining our robust advocacy efforts by communicating with lawmakers in a virtual environment, and we've stepped up our online career and financial offerings. We've added webinars open to all members of the uniformed services community — including spouses — who are seeking employment, a better understanding of their benefits, or assistance navigating uncharted financial waters amid health concerns. Now, our COVID-19 Relief Fund has momentum to further help military families in a time of their greatest need. Join the hundreds already taking advantage of these resources and help watch out for your friends and family.
