NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance (TDCI) proudly announces that TDCI’s Securities Division recently received the Savings Champion Award from Military Saves, the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit dedicated to encouraging greater financial literacy among members of the military.

The Savings Champion Award is a national recognition for organizations for their work during Military Saves Month.

The Savings Champion Award was bestowed on organizations by a selection committee comprised of Military Saves staff and leadership in all program initiatives.

“I am honored that our team was recognized by Military Saves for helping Tennessee’s bravest and most courageous citizens learn the importance of financial literacy and how to create good financial habits,” said TDCI Assistant Commissioner Elizabeth Bowling. “Tennessee’s military families know they can count on TDCI’s Securities  Division all year long to support them as they serve our state and our nation.”
