Army Emergency Relief is the U.S. Army's own nonprofit organization dedicated to alleviating financial distress on the force. AER provides grants and zero-interest loans to Active Duty and Retired Soldiers and their Families. Over 4 million Soldiers supported since 1942. AER officers are conveniently located at installations around the world. Visit ArmyEmergencyRelief.org to learn more

New policy: All ranks are now allowed to sign their own AER Form 101 application (as long as it is not a Commander and First Sergeant Quick Assist Option). This policy change allows E4 and below the opportunity to come to AER and process an application without Command signature for approval. Set stipulations apply.
