Military Spouse Employment: Participation in and Efforts to Promote the My Career Advancement Account Program
For many of the approximately 612,000 spouses of active duty servicemembers, the special conditions of military life may make it difficult to start or maintain a career. Military spouses may have to move frequently to keep families together when servicemembers are relocated, or they may have to bear a larger share of family responsibilities. The My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) program is one approach the Department of Defense (DOD) has taken to help military spouses improve their employment opportunities. The MyCAA program provides up to $4,000 intuition assistance for education or training for eligible spouses of servicemembers. The use of MyCAA funds is restricted to the attainment of certificates, licenses, or associate's degrees in a portable career field, which is defined by DOD and the Department of Labor as one that is high growth, high-demand and most likely to have job openings in military duty locations.
