About Garrett
Garrett Masterson joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in January 2020, following a 8-year career in the United States USAF, where he attained the rank of SSgt. Garrett 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.

A graduate of Colorado State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science, Garrett holds Series 7, 66 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in CO, DC, MD, TX & VA.

Understanding that the biggest obstacle to financial security for most people is their own behavior, Garrett serves as a personal financial coach to clients, continually reinforcing positive financial behaviors. His thorough knowledge of military pay and benefits enables him to advise clients on how to navigate the Blended Retirement System, properly allocate their contributions to the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) and take full advantage of other benefits. Garrett 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.

Today, more than 500 First Command Financial Advisors across the country and abroad, many of whom also served, are committed to the company’s Mission of “Coaching those who serve in their pursuit of financial security.”
