Video Message to Command PASS CoordinatorsLeadership from Pers-2 has a message to all CPCs across the fleet.

CPCs serve a pivotal role in your Commands, and have a direct effect on your Sailors' pay and benefits; equip them with the right tools to perform their job.

The way a credit score affects an individual directly is best demonstrated with interest rates, and Sailors with bad credit often end up paying more for things than people with good credit.
