About Andrew
Andrew Chess joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in June 2020, following a 12-year career in the United States Navy, where he attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Andrew 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.

Andrew has a Bachelor’s degree in English from US Naval Academy and a Master’s degree in National Security from US Naval War College. He holds Series SIE, S7, S6 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in Virginia, North Carolina, Texas and California.

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

First Command Financial Services was founded in 1958 by a retired Air Force officer for the specific purpose of improving the financial well-being of military professionals and their families. 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.”
