About Tim
Tim Custer joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in January 1999, following a 13-year career in the United States Coast Guard, where he attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander and served as commanding officer of the USCG Cutter Point Verde and USCG Cutter Nunivak. Tim understands the challenges and opportunities associated with life in the military and is committed to helping service members and their families get their financial lives squared away.

Tim has a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the Coast Guard Academy and a Master’s degree in Business from The John's Hopkins University.

Understanding that the biggest obstacle to financial security for most people is their own behavior, Tim serves as a personal financial coach to clients, continually reinforcing positive financial behaviors. He advocates time-tested financial principles, including disciplined, long-term saving and investing, careful debt management, and a thoughtful insurance strategy to manage financial risk. Tim will work with you to establish specific, meaningful goals that are consistent with your values and then develop a personalized financial plan to guide your pursuit of those goals.

In his free time, Tim enjoys hiking, spending time with family, and traveling.
