About Peter
Peter Gooding joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in June 2017, following a 20-year career in the United States Coast Guard, where he attained the rank of Commander. Peter 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.

Peter has a Bachelor's degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and Mechanical Engineering from United States Coast Guard Academy and a Master's degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He holds Series 7 and 66 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in Virginia, Maryland, District of Columbia, West Virginia, California, Florida, Texas, and South Carolina.

Understanding that the biggest obstacle to financial security for most people is their own behavior, Peter 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. Peter 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, Peter enjoys golf and spending time with friends.
