Applying for an Air Force Aid Society loan became easier through a new online application process.
Ramstein Air Base was selected as one of nine test bases for the new online process,
giving Kaiserslautern Military Community service members easier access to emergency
financial support.
The new application portal is active here and provides Airmen and Guardians of all
ranks an opportunity to submit their applications for interest-free loans online rather than
in-person at the Military and Family Readiness Center. However, the M&FRC is still
open for in-person help.
“We pride ourselves on being able to help with whatever difficulties you may be going
through,” said Angie Fields, M&FRC community readiness consultant. “In light of the
COLA decrease and other financial challenges, our doors are always open to those who
need help with applying for loans or grants, and we even offer financial counseling to
help you budget your future.”
Airmen will be able to upload budget documents and fill out forms completely online,
and, if approved, the loan will be directly deposited.
