Military veterans in Missouri can tap their G.I. Bill benefits while they train to become financial advisors at financial services firm Edward Jones.
Missouri—where Edward Jones is based—is the first state to approve use of the benefits by veterans in the program. The veteran/employees get enhanced training and mentoring, along with a structured compensation package, as they learn their new jobs.
The program meets federal requirements for the G.I. Bill, which supplements the income of veterans for up to six months while they participate in on-the-job training for no pay or reduced wages.
The training is designed for veterans and qualifying spouses with no background in financial services. Civilians with law or medical degrees and MBAs with less than three years of work experience also qualify.
In an Edward Jones survey, 60% said they believe skills gained in the military are transferable to post-military careers in financial planning.
