Home > Who We Are > Supporting Our Veterans

Bank of America has proudly supported the U.S. military and veterans for more than 90 years. Learn more about our commitment to improving the transition from military life to civilian life. This commitment is lead by our Military Affairs Team, a dedicated group of leaders within Bank of America focused on service members and their families, and their successful reintegration into the civilian sector.

We’re honored to have so many veterans working at Bank of America, and value all they bring to our team. They make us stronger. That’s why we’ve dedicated resources to hire 10,000 veterans, guard and reservists over the next few years. It’s also why we’ve developed programs, resources and networks to help them succeed at our company.

As you start your transition from the military, we hope you’ll consider Bank of America. 

Here are a few of the resources we have to help veterans build their careers at Bank of America:

Ongoing Learning

Our innovative learning series is customized for the employees we hire from the military, and their managers. The series connects employees to a virtual “battle buddy” and helps address some of the more common cultural challenges military employees encounter when transitioning to the corporate workplace

Employee Networks

Military Support and Assistance Group

Our Military Support and Assistance Group (MSAG) connects veterans, family members and colleagues who simply want to show their support. MSAG helps members network, develop and in their careers, and give back to communities.

(MSAG) is an employee resource network for military employees, their colleagues, families and supporters. The group helps military employees connect with fellow veterans, while also offering opportunities to network and develop in their career. In partnership with Bank of America Community Volunteers, MSAG identifies volunteer efforts that serve to support the families of deployed Guard and Reserve employees. MSAG has also created the Veteran Transition Sponsor Program, which helps deploying military employees connect with others who have deployed. The employees receive coaching and mentorship from senior leaders on how to support their career while serving their country. Each deployed employee is assigned a sponsor who provides contact and support before, during and after their deployment to assist with their transition to and from their role within Bank of America. Sponsors also serve as a point of contact for family members, should they have questions or need assistance from someone with Bank of America. 

Bank of America Initiatives

We show our dedication to veterans and their families through a wide range of initiatives. From philanthropic and community outreach to donating homes and employee resource networks we’re honored to support the military.
