Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA)Program Description:

The Department of Defense's expanded Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program is now offering up to $4,000 to military spouses who are interested in pursuing degree programs, licenses or credentials leading to careers in high growth, high demand portable career fields.

What Does MyCAA Pay For?

MyCAA financial assistance pays for expenses such as post-secondary education and training, tuition, licensing, and credentialing fees. MyCAA does not pay for computers, school application fees, graduation fees, student activity cards, child care, parking, transportation, medical services or testing fees

How Does a Spouse Get Started?

Eligible spouses who are ready to explore portable careers options and develop a career goal and plan should establish a MyCAA Account by visiting the MyCAA website. This is an easy, self-help process. Once spouse profile information is provided, DoD will verify MyCAA eligibility through DEERS. The spouse will be notified of his/her eligibility status through the MyCAA messaging system.

Who Can Help Spouses Move Through the MyCAA Program?

Spouses are encouraged to work with their School Academic Advisor or call a Military OneSource Career/Education Consultant at 1-800-342-9647 if they need help.
