MoneyLion Joins the Semper Fi Fund to Honor the U.S. Armed Forces on Veterans Day

November 12, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2018--MoneyLion, America’s most powerful and rewarding financial membership designed to help the hardest-working Americans save, borrow and invest, today announced they have joined with the Semper Fi Fund to help some of the hardest-working Americans – the U.S. Armed Forces.

According to Military.com, 49 percent of military families have less than $5,000 in savings and 42 percent of service members and 40 percent of military spouses identify military pay and benefits as one of their top five areas of concern. So, this Veterans Day, MoneyLion, and its membership of more than 3 million people, are committing donations to the Semper Fi Fund to help transitioning service members find a path to more stable and rewarding financial futures.

Starting on Veterans Day, MoneyLion will donate $5 for each service member or spouse that signs up for a Core or Plus MoneyLion account during the month of November. Additionally, MoneyLion Plus members can donate $1 from their investment accounts to the Semper Fi Fund on Veterans Day through the mobile app. MoneyLion will match any donations made to the Semper Fi Fund on Veterans Day from its current members.

“Our nation owes more than a debt of gratitude to the millions of heroes serving in the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Dee Choubey, CEO and Founder at MoneyLion. “At MoneyLion we’re committed to ending the financial stress that plagues all Americans by helping them measure their overall financial health, giving them access to fee-free banking, saving and investing tools and providing them with ongoing counsel from some of the industry’s leading experts. Our ultimate mission is to inspire a new generation of the hardest-working Americans to overcome their toughest financial challenges.”

MoneyLion members benefit from zero-fee checking accounts, a debit card with more rewards, and access to over 55,000 fee-free ATMs across the U.S. MoneyLion also offers members instant cash advances with 0 percent APR, zero fee investment accounts, and access to credit building loans with 5.9 percent APR.

“We are grateful to MoneyLion for their support,” said Semper Fi Fund President, CEO and Founder Karen Guenther. “And, appreciate their passion for our military families.”

As an organization committed to providing resources and lifetime support to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families, the Semper Fi Fund helps injured service members to thrive beyond injury to recovery. As part of its Transition Program, Semper Fi Fund offers a broad array of assistance and education, including financial literacy.
