About Scott
Scott Smith joined First Command Financial Services as a Financial Advisor in September 2021, following a 28-year career in the United States Army, where he attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Scott 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.

Scott has a Bachelor’s degree in history from the United States Military Academy and a Master’s degree in international relations from Webster University. He holds Series 7 and 66 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in Washington.

Understanding that the biggest obstacle to financial security for most people is their own behavior, Scott 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. Scott 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.

Active in his community, Scott is a volunteer for Scouting BSA.

In his free time, Scott enjoys hiking, spending time with family, and working out.

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.”
