When you need help meeting urgent financial needs, the Society is there. With 50 full service offices co-located with Navy and Marine Corps installations, and nearly 200 emergency service offices on ships, Marines and Sailors have access to emergency financial assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from almost anywhere in the world.
Quick Assist Loans
When you need money fast, our Quick Assist Loan® (QAL) may be the answer. No application or appointment is needed to get an interest-free loan–up to $500. Learn more at www.nmcrs.org/QAL.
When a natural or catastrophic disaster happens, emergency financial assistance is available to help with the unplanned expenses related to evacuation (gas, food, and lodging), to replace food, clothing, and basic living items, and to rebuild and recover.
Traditional Visiting Nurse Program
Registered Nurses make free house calls to new mothers and their babies, active duty members assigned to bed rest, retirees, and widows or widowers living alone and in need of assistance from a health care professional. Visiting Nurses help patients understand breastfeeding, nutritional requirements, post-partum care, medications, how to cope with chronic illness, and answer questions regarding a wide spectrum of health care issues.
Interest-free loans or scholarships to attend undergraduate education at an accredited educational institution in the United States are available.
Budget for Baby Workshops
Welcoming a new family member is exciting. Budget for Baby® Workshops help parents budget for baby’s expenses and learn to be financially prepared for this lifetime financial commitment. Each family receives a welcome baby gift bag, a $25 gift card, and a hand-made baby blanket.
Thrift Shops accept and sell gently used, low-cost clothing, uniform items, and household goods which can help military families stay within their budget when furnishing a nursery for baby, setting up housekeeping for the first time, after a PCS move, or buying seasonal clothing.
