WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- The Air Force Aid Society recently released a new version of its free AFAS Budget Builder App. The mobile app now offers more enhanced expense tracking and spending categories, customized budget reporting features and the ability to receive real-time AFAS news and program updates including disaster relief alerts.

The initial version of the AFAS Budget Builder App was launched in 2018 and was created primarily as a budgeting tool to help Airmen and their families improve how they save and budget their money each month. Prior to the Budget Builder App, AFAS provided paper check registers to Airmen and other service members to manually track monthly expense activity.

“When our Airmen tell us what they want, we listen. We are excited that we have a budgeting tool that puts information and financial tools right at their fingertips to stay connected with us,” said retired Lt. Gen. John D. Hopper, AFAS CEO. “Our goal with this application is to encourage better financial management practices. We also want to offer another avenue for our Airmen and their families to receive timely program information, especially during times of a natural disaster like the one we faced with Hurricane Michael.”

The AFAS Budget Builder App is now available for download through the App Store and on Google Play. For more details on all the new features and enhancements, visit www.afas.org/budgetapp.
