AER provides loans that are always free from interest and fees to Service Members and immediate family members in need of financial assistance. Repayment of loans is vital to ensure that AER can continue to provide assistance to the community it serves.
AER is the Army's own emergency financial assistance organization and is dedicated to "Helping the Army Take Care of its Own." AER financial assistance is conducted within the Army structure by mission commanders and garrison commanders through the 81 AER Sections located at U.S. Army installations worldwide.
AER respects the privacy concerns of those we serve and our supporters. Except where disclosure is required by law, we do not share, sell, or trade the personally identifiable information from our donors or scholarship/financial assistance applicants.
